Matrix computations
by
Gene H Golub(
Book
)
91 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded by more than one third, this new edition of Golub and Van Loan's landmark book in scientific computing provides the vital mathematical background and algorithmic skills required for the production of numerical software. New chapters on high performance computing use matrix multiplication to show how to organize a calculation for vector processors as well as for computers with shared or distributed memories. A.so new are discussions of parallel vector methods for linear equations, least squares, and eigenvalue problems."Back cover

Handbook for matrix computations
by
Thomas F Coleman(
Book
)
21 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and Italian and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This handbook can be used as a reference by those actively engaged in scientific computation. It can also serve as a practical companion text in a numerical methods course that involves a significant amount of linear algebraic computation. The book has four chapters, each being fairly independent of the others."Preface

Computational frameworks for the fast fourier transform
by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
18 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The most comprehensive treatment of FFTs to date. Van Loan captures the interplay between mathematics and the design of effective numerical algorithmsa critical connection as more advanced machines become available. A stylized Matlab notation, which is familiar to those engaged in highperformance computing, is used. The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) family of algorithms has revolutionized many areas of scientific computation. The FFT is one of the most widely used algorithms in science and engineering, with applications in almost every discipline. This volume is essential for professionals interested in linear algebra as well as those working with numerical methods. The FFT is also a great vehicle for teaching key aspects of scientific computing

Insight through computing : a MATLAB introduction to computational science and engineering
by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This introduction to computerbased problemsolving using the MATLAB environment is highly recommended for students wishing to learn the concepts and develop the programming skills that are fundamental to computational science and engineering (CSE). Through a 'teaching by examples' approach, the authors pose strategically chosen problems to help firsttime programmers learn these necessary concepts and skills. Each section formulates a problem and then introduces those new MATLAB language features that are necessary to solve it. This approach puts problemsolving and algorithmic thinking first and syntactical details second. Each solution is followed by a 'talking point' that concerns some related, larger issue associated with CSE. Collectively, the worked examples, talking points, and 300+ homework problems build intuition for the process of discretization and an appreciation for dimension, inexactitude, visualization, randomness, and complexity. This sets the stage for further coursework in CSE areas

A unitary method for the ESPRIT directionofarrival estimation algorithm
by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
ESPRIT is an interesting new method for solving the DirectionofArrival estimation problem. It involves some rather tricky matrix manipulations. We show how these calculations can be carried out using only unitary transformations of the data. No inverses or crossproducts are required making the new method extremely robust
