Funzioni per matrici

Function File: `expm (A)`
Return the exponential of a matrix.
The matrix exponential is defined as the infinite Taylor series `expm (A) = I + A + A^2/2! + A^3/3! + ...`.
However, the Taylor series is not the way to compute the matrix exponential; see Moler and Van Loan, Nineteen Dubious Ways to Compute the Exponential of a Matrix, SIAM Review, 1978. This routine uses Ward’s diagonal Padé approximation method with three step preconditioning (SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, 1977). Diagonal Padé approximations are rational polynomials of matrices whose Taylor series matches the first `2q+1` terms of the Taylor series above; direct evaluation of the Taylor series (with the same preconditioning steps) may be desirable in lieu of the Padé approximation when `Dq(A)` is ill-conditioned. Function File: `s = logm (A)`
Function File: `s = logm (A, opt_iters)`
Function File: `[s, iters] = logm (...)`

Compute the matrix logarithm of the square matrix `A`.
The implementation utilizes a Padé approximant and the identity `logm (A) = 2^k * logm (A^(1 / 2^k))`.
The optional input `opt_iters` is the maximum number of square roots to compute and defaults to 100.
The optional output iters is the number of square roots actually computed. Built-in Function: `s = sqrtm (A)`
Built-in Function: `[s, error_estimate] = sqrtm (A)`

Compute the matrix square root of the square matrix `A`.
Ref: N.J. Higham. A New sqrtm for MATLAB. Numerical Analysis Report No. 336, Manchester Centre for Computational Mathematics, Manchester, England, January 1999. Built-in Function: `kron (A, B)`
Built-in Function: `kron (A1, A2, ...)`

Form the Kronecker product of two or more matrices.
This is defined block by block as `x = [ a(i,j)*b ]`. If there are more than two input arguments `A1, A2, ..., An` the Kronecker product is computed as `kron (kron (A1, A2), ..., An)`. Since the Kronecker product is associative, this is well-defined.

Built-in Function: `blkmm (A, B)`
Compute products of matrix blocks.
The blocks are given as 2-dimensional subarrays of the arrays `A`, `B`. The size of `A` must have the form `[m,k,...]` and size of `B` must be `[k,n,...]`. The result is then of size `[m,n,...]` and is computed as follows:

``````for i = 1:prod (size (A)(3:end))
C(:,:,i) = A(:,:,i) * B(:,:,i)
endfor`````` Built-in Function: `X = syl (A, B, C)`

Solve the Sylvester equation `A X + X B = C` using standard LAPACK subroutines.  Posta un commento o usa questo indirizzo per il trackback.
