The main theme of the Workshop is the accuracy in the eigenvalue decomposition or singular value decomposition of matrices or even in solving linear systems. We will stress this to be a workshop and so the program is not overloaded with too many speakers. The talks are scheduled in the morning, and each speaker will give a full seminar instead of a usual short lecture. We rather prefer to The afternoons are reserved for contributed lectures, including those from junior people, as well as for less formal discussions and working groups. During the Workshop there will be enough free time to further discussions. For details see the

The general themes for discussion are:

  1. how to turn recent results on relative perturbation theory and accurate algorithms systematically into a good software,
  2. open problems,
  3. how to present recent results in a monograph,
  4. how to let recent results influence the teaching of numerical linear algebra,
  5. how to apply recent results real world engineering problems.
Split is a picturesque city with population around 200,000 which in this decade celebrates 1700 years of urban settlement. It is located on the Croatian Adriatic coast, the beauty of which is proverbial with its hundreds of islands and still quite unpolluted nature.

Split is accessible by train (9 hours trip from Zagreb), by ship (one night by ferry from Rijeka, Pescara or Ancona), by car (6 hours from Zagreb, 8 hours from Trieste), and by plane. Split airport has daily connections to all world destinations. There are direct flights from Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, and Rome on some days. All other connections are via Zagreb by Croatian Airlines.
INFORMATION FOR YOUR TRAVEL AGENT: the Croatia Airlines timetable is accessed through the AMADEUS Distributive System.
