Abstract : Research under this contract has been concentrated on major problems in numerical linear algebra. (1) The determination of error bounds for Gaussian elimination. (2) The generalized eigenvalue problem AX = lambda BX and its natural extension to the computation of the canonical form of the pencil A - lambda B where A and B are mxn matrices. In addition, the numerical aspects of various problems in linear system theory and related fields have been studied. (Author)
