Last week Nick Higham, Edvin Deadman, and I ran a minisymposium on matrix functions at the SIAM Applied Linear Algebra 2015 conference (link). This post gives a brief summary of each talk, links to published work, and (once they appear) links to the slides with synchronised audio.
Edit: Links to the talks are now available.
Attendance at the sessions was very good, with some high-quality questions coming from the audience.
The symposium had two sessions.
- Marcel Schweitzer – Error Estimation in Krylov Subspace Methods for Matrix Functions
- Michele Benzi – Functions of Matrices with Kronecker Sum Structure
- Bruno Iannazzo – First-Order Riemannian Optimization Techniques for the Karcher Mean
- Sivan Toledo – A High Performance Algorithm for the Matrix Sign Function
- Peter Kandolf – The Leja Method: Backward Error Analysis and Implementation
- Massimiliano Fasi – An Algorithm for the Lambert W Function on Matrices
- Antii Koskela – An Exponential Integrator for Polynomially Perturbed Linear ODEs
- Edvin Deadman – Estimating the condition number of f(A)b
Peter Kandolf describing the famour “hump” in the matrix exponential.
