I believe I've figured out what was confusing me. The notation used in Golub/Van Loan is referred to as "block matrix notation".

If only there was some sort of... universal math notation that didn't rely on per-topic experience and context clues... ;)

I assumed that same technique can be used for QR algorithm. check the algorithm section.

Thank you. The Cholesky decomposition is related but not what I'm implementing at the moment. However this will likely be useful in the future.

Even the name "QR algorithm" seems to be something of a misnomer. From the wikipedia page:

" in the modern implicit version of the procedure no QR decompositions are explicitly performed, some authors, for instance Watkins,[8] suggested changing its name to Francis algorithm"

Is anybody familiar with the QR algorithm, or the notation used in Golub & Van Loan's book "Matrix Computations"?

I am working my way towards building an APL linear algebra toolkit, and am having trouble deciphering what some of the steps signify.

Any other communities that might be able to assist me is also helpful - for example a mailing list.

The 4th edition should be available as a PDF online (although I will not link to it), and my specific question is linked below:

Figured it would be worth a shot.

Cheers y'all.
