The group Numerical Linear Algebra studies algorithms for complex numerical problems, usually involving computations on very large matrices.
The results of this research are important for applications in engineering and natural science that require computation-intensive numerical problems to be solved. Along with the theoretical work and the exploration of applications in, e.g., systems and control theory, the group also contributes to the further development of standard software libraries, such as LAPACK, ScaLAPACK, and the SLICOT library within the NICONET project.
