In order to shed some light on the numerical complexity and the cost of solving these model problems we enlist some of the associated computational statistics. All problems were solved on a dual Xeon workstation with 16 physical CPU cores and the iterative solution process was terminated with a residual error in the order of [10.sup.-5].
The textbook is based on the lectures and exercises in a long-running course on computational statistics. In addition to current algorithms, it describes earlier ones that are often still used as building blocks, emphasizes recurring themes to suggest the shape of the field as a whole while addressing particulars, and includes chapters on systematic verification and scaling up to very large data sets.
