Shortly after the top of worldwide battle II high-speed electronic computing machines have been being constructed. It used to be transparent that the mathematical facets of com putation had to be reexamined in an effort to make effective use of high-speed electronic pcs for mathematical computations. as a result, lower than the management of Min a Rees, John Curtiss, and others, an Institute for Numerical research used to be organize on the collage of California at la less than the sponsorship of the nationwide Bureau of criteria. an identical institute was once shaped on the nationwide Bureau of criteria in Washington, D. C. In 1949 J. Barkeley Rosser grew to become Director of the gang at UCLA for a interval of 2 years. in this interval we geared up a seminar at the research of solu tions of simultaneous linear equations and at the choice of eigen values. G. Forsythe, W. Karush, C. Lanczos, T. Motzkin, L. J. Paige, and others attended this seminar. We chanced on, for instance, that even Gaus sian removing used to be now not good understood from a computer perspective and that no powerful laptop orientated removal set of rules have been built. in this interval Lanczos built his three-term courting and that i had the nice fortune of suggesting the tactic of conjugate gradients. We dis lined later on that the elemental rules underlying the 2 methods are primarily an analogous. the concept that of conjugacy used to be now not new to me. In a joint paper with G. D.
