Gauss Elimination • Let’s solve the linear system at right 2 x 1 + x 2 + 3x 3 = 12 4 x 1 + x 2 + 8x 3 + x 4 = 23 6 x 1 + 5x 2 + 6 x 3 3x 4 = 37 x 2 + 4 x 3 + x 4 = 1

Gauss Elimination • Works well, gets us to the answer • What if we had to solve a problem with the same matrix but a different RHS? • What if this happened many times, as it often does? • Can we take reuse some information so that we don't have to start from scratch every time?

• Gauss elimination has two steps: – A series of manipulations to put the equation in a convenient form, and – A series of solutions to get the x vector. • The Frst series, which is the more costly
