## Abstract

Some of the factors to be considered when applying the techniques of numerical linear algebra to statistical problems are discussed with reference to three particular examples: the use of the normal equations in regression problems; the use of perturbation theory to assess the effects of errors in regression matrices; and the phenomenon of benign degeneracy, in which the numerical problem becomes more difficult even as the associated statistical problem becomes easier.
