Matrix computations by
Gene H Golub(
Book
)
103 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded by more than one third, this new edition of Golub and Van Loan's landmark book in scientific computing provides the vital mathematical background and algorithmic skills required for the production of numerical software. New chapters on high performance computing use matrix multiplication to show how to organize a calculation for vector processors as well as for computers with shared or distributed memories. A.so new are discussions of parallel vector methods for linear equations, least squares, and eigenvalue problems."Back cover

Computational frameworks for the fast fourier transform by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
22 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The most comprehensive treatment of FFTs to date. Van Loan captures the interplay between mathematics and the design of effective numerical algorithmsa critical connection as more advanced machines become available. A stylized Matlab notation, which is familiar to those engaged in highperformance computing, is used. The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) family of algorithms has revolutionized many areas of scientific computation. The FFT is one of the most widely used algorithms in science and engineering, with applications in almost every discipline. This volume is essential for professionals interested in linear algebra as well as those working with numerical methods. The FFT is also a great vehicle for teaching key aspects of scientific computing

Insight through computing : a MATLAB introduction to computational science and engineering by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This introduction to computerbased problemsolving using the MATLAB environment is highly recommended for students wishing to learn the concepts and develop the programming skills that are fundamental to computational science and engineering (CSE). Through a 'teaching by examples' approach, the authors pose strategically chosen problems to help firsttime programmers learn these necessary concepts and skills. Each section formulates a problem and then introduces those new MATLAB language features that are necessary to solve it. This approach puts problemsolving and algorithmic thinking first and syntactical details second. Each solution is followed by a 'talking point' that concerns some related, larger issue associated with CSE. Collectively, the worked examples, talking points, and 300+ homework problems build intuition for the process of discretization and an appreciation for dimension, inexactitude, visualization, randomness, and complexity. This sets the stage for further coursework in CSE areas

A symplectic method for approximating all the eigenvalues of a Hamiltonian matrix by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A fast method for computing all the eigenvalues of a Hamiltonian matrix M is given. The method relies on orthogonal symplectic similarity transformations which preserve structure and have desirable numerical properties. The algorithm is about four times faster than the standard QR algorithm. The computed eigenvalues are shown to be the exact eigenvalues of a matrix M+E where $\Vert E \Vert$ depends on the square root of the machine precision. The accuracy of a computed eigenvalue depends on its condition and its magnitude, larger eigenvalues typically being more accurate

A HessenbergSchur method for the problem AX + XB=C by
Gene H Golub(
Book
)
6 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most effective methods for solving the matrix equation AX + XB = C is the BartelsStewart algorithm. Key to this technique is the orthogonal reduction of A and B to triangular form using the QR algorithm for eigenvalues. A new method is proposed which differs from the BartelsStewart algorithm in that A is only reduced to Hessenberg form. The resulting algorithm is between 30 and 70 percent faster depending upon the dimensions of the matrices A and B. The stability of the new method is demonstrated through a roundoff error analysis and supported by numerical tests. Fianlly, it is shown how the techniques described can be applied and generalized to other matrix equation problems

Matrix computations and signal processing by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The interactions between the signal processing and matrix computation areas is explored by examining some subspace dimension estimation problems that arise in a pair of directionofarrival algorithms: MUSIC and ESPRIT. We show that the intelligent handling of these numerical problems requires a successful intermingling of perturbation theory, sensible problem formulation, and reliance upon unitary matrix methods

A unitary method for the ESPRIT directionofarrival estimation algorithm by
Charles F Van Loan(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
ESPRIT is an interesting new method for solving the DirectionofArrival estimation problem. It involves some rather tricky matrix manipulations. We show how these calculations can be carried out using only unitary transformations of the data. No inverses or crossproducts are required making the new method extremely robust
