Textbooks, reference works, and tutorials

There is a substantial pool of information on numerical issues in linear algebra available on the internet -- see for example the newsgroup sci.math.num-analysis.

Software and tables

Note that mathematical algorithms constitute one of the most web-accessible bodies of human knowledge available. A search at one of these sites can easily save considerable programming headaches! Highly recommended are NETLIB and GAMS. See also TOMS.
