Wilkinson, numerical analysis, and me

15 October 2019

The two courses I took from Wilkinson as a graduate student at Stanford influenced me greatly.  Along with some reminiscences of those days, this talk will touch upon backward error analysis, Gaussian elimination, and Evariste Galois.  It was originally presented at the Wilkinson 100th Birthday conference in Manchester earlier this year.
