Unformatted text preview: Homework 3 Foundations of Computational Math 1 Fall 2011 The solutions will be posted on Friday, 9/30/11 Problem 3.1 Suppose A R n n is a nonsymmetric nonsingular diagonally dominant matrix with the following nonzero pattern (shown for n = 6) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 It is known that a diagonally dominant (row or column dominant) matrix has an LU factor ization and that pivoting is not required for numerical reliability. 3.1.a . Describe an algorithm that solves Ax = b as efficiently as possible. 3.1.b . Given that the number of operations in the algorithm is of the form Cn k + O ( n k 1 ), where C is a constant independent of n and k > 0, what are C and k ? Problem 3.2 It is known that if partial or complete pivoting is used to compute PA = LU or PAQ = LU of a nonsingular matrix then the elements of L are less than 1 in magnitude, i.e., ...
