A modified Cayley transform for the discretized Navier-Stokes equations

K. A. Cliffe, T. J. Garratt, Alastair Spence (1993)

Applications of Mathematics

This paper is concerned with the problem of computing a small number of eigenvalues of large sparse generalized eigenvalue problems. The matrices arise from mixed finite element discretizations of time dependent equations modelling viscous incompressible flow. The eigenvalues of importance are those with smallest real part and are used to determine the linearized stability of steady states, and could be used in a scheme to detect Hopf bifurcations. We introduce a modified Cayley transform of the...

A parallel block Lanczos algorithm and its implementation for the evaluation of some eigenvalues of large sparse symmetric matrices on multicomputers

Mario Guarracino, Francesca Perla, Paolo Zanetti (2006)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In the present work we describe HPEC (High Performance Eigenvalues Computation), a parallel software package for the evaluation of some eigenvalues of a large sparse symmetric matrix. It implements an efficient and portable Block Lanczos algorithm for distributed memory multicomputers. HPEC is based on basic linear algebra operations for sparse and dense matrices, some of which have been derived by ScaLAPACK library modules. Numerical experiments have been carried out to evaluate HPEC performance...

All-at-once preconditioning in PDE-constrained optimization

Tyrone Rees, Martin Stoll, Andy Wathen (2010)


The optimization of functions subject to partial differential equations (PDE) plays an important role in many areas of science and industry. In this paper we introduce the basic concepts of PDE-constrained optimization and show how the all-at-once approach will lead to linear systems in saddle point form. We will discuss implementation details and different boundary conditions. We then show how these system can be solved efficiently and discuss methods and preconditioners also in the case when bound...
