general theory of direct methods; band matrices; factorization methods; Gaussian elimination; transfer of the boundary condition
A unified approach to the theory and construction of direct methods is presented. The approach is based on the idea of the transfer of conditions. In examples it is shown how to obtain a particular method from the general algorithm.
