PIMS-CORDS SFU Operations Research Seminar: Fatemeh Beik
May 9, 2024
Simon Fraser University
In this talk, we study the performance of some preconditioners for accelerating the convergence of Krylov subspace methods for solving linear systems of equations with a block three-by-three structure. A brief discussion is included regarding how...
