Solution of linear equations with coefficient matrix in band form

  • R. P. Tewarson


An algorithm is given for the solution of simultaneous linear equations having a band type coefficient matrix. The algorithm utilizes a suitable partitioning of the coefficient matrix. Some particular cases are described in which the use of the algorithm is advisable.
