    MATRIX - Please help me out, urgently in need!

    Hi all,

    Can anyone please help me with the following question. Actually, i received a paper from some German University and I have to reply by 14th, so a bit urgent.
    Looking forward for your prime help.

    What is the consequence of a large condition number concerning the resolution of the number
    representation of a computer? Given a condition number of a matrix, does that have an
    influence on the number representation (bits used to represent a floating point number) if the
    size of the matrix grows?
