Does anyone understand the explination of the costs of elimination. I have both of his books, and different versions, and it is really not clear to me. He is very ambigiuos ...

In lecture 4 he sad that a n x n matrix has a 1/3*n^3 cost, because the matrix has n*n=n^2 elements. The sum of all the elements from 1^2 =1 to n^2 is (1/3)*n^3 for any n. In calculus you could solve this with integration where you take a function f is n^2, than you integrate function f and an undifinite integral of n^2 is 1/3*n^3.\[\sum_{n=1}^{n}\ n^{2}=\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }*n^{3}\rightarrow \int\limits_{}^{}n^{2} dn= \frac{ n^{3} }{ 3 }\]

On top of what M.J. said, the meaning of that is that the number of operations that takes to do elimination can be bounded by n^3/3, this means that no matter how much n grows, it will never require more than n^3/3 computations

I don't understand your question clearly if you mean target of elimination then i say you we do elimination to find the solution of a system.
