Eigenvalue Problems and Applications

Sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Capitol North

Algebraic eigenvalue problems and their applications continue to be a challenging yet fruitful area of research for numerical analysts.The speakers will describe four diverse topics relating to the eigenvalue problem: relative perturbation theory, implementation of the multishift QR-algorithm, eigenvalue-based characterization of positive realness of transfer functions, and solution of the quadratic matrix equation AX2+ BX + C = 0 associated with the quadratic eigenvalue problem.

Organizer: Nicholas J. Higham
University of Manchester, United Kingdom
