**Subject: SVD Update**

I have the SVD of matrix M, and I want the SVD of [M v] -- ie,

append a column (v) to M. Can I use the SVD of M for a fast

update?

**Subject: Solution of Singular Eigenvalue Problem**

In V.03, # 26, (24 June 2003), I made the following inquiry to NA Digest:

> We have NxN matrices A,B,C,D with known entries. We wish to find the

> eigenvalues x and eigenvectors v that satisfy

> lim_{q->0} [ A + qB + x(C + qD)] v = 0.

> If A and C are general, then this is just a generalized eigenvalue problem

> with q=0. In the case at hand, the eigenvalue problem is singular at q=0,

> because A and C have a common null space. However, for general q, the

> problem is nonsingular, so the limit values must exist.

>

> I would appreciate any ideas on how to solve this problem in a stable and

> efficient manner, by say, converting it to a nonsingular eigenvalue problem.

I received a number of replies, and so I thought it might be of interest to

post the solution. Ming Gu of U.C. Berkeley provided the best hint, which

resulted in the following algorithm.

First, use singular value decomopsition to find the common null space of

A and C. (In Matlab, use [U,S,V]=svd([A;C]);) So V=[M N] is orthogonal,

and A*N=C*N=0. Then, using the change of variable for the eigenvector

to v=[M N]w = M*w1 + N*w2, we have the equivalent nonsingular eigenvector

problem:

( [A*M B*N] + x*[C*M D*N] ) [w1; q*w2] = 0.

Thanks to all those who sent suggestions. Any improvements or alternatives

to this approach would still be welcome.

**Subject: New Book on Compressible Flow**

Mathematical and Computational Methods for Compressible Flow

Miloslav Feistauer, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University,

Prague, Czech Republic, Jiri Felcman, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics,

Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, and Ivan Straskraba,

Mathematical Institute, Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic, Prague, Czech

Republic.

This book is concerned with mathematical and numerical methods for

compressible flow. It aims to provide the reader with a sufficiently

detailed and extensive, mathematically precise, but comprehensible guide,

through a wide spectrum of mathematical and computational methods used in

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for the numerical simulation of

compressible flow.

Up-to-date techniques applied in the numerical solution of inviscid as well

as viscous compressible flow on unstructured meshes are explained, thus

allowing the simulation of complex three-dimensional technically relevant

problems. Among some of the methods addressed are finite volume methods

using approximate Riemann solvers, finite element techniques, such as the

streamline diffusion and the discontinuous Galerkin methods, and combined

finite volume - finite element schemes. The book gives a complex insight

into the numerics of compressible flow, covering the development of

numerical schemes and their theoretical mathematical analysis, their

verification on test problems and use in solving practical engineering

problems.

The book will be helpful to specialists coming into contact with CFD - pure

and applied mathematicians, aerodynamists, engineers, physicists and natural

scientists. It will also be suitable for advanced undergraduate, graduate

and postgraduate students of mathematics and technical sciences.

* Useful as a textbook for students in pure and applied mathematics and

technical sciences

* Excellent handbook for specialists

**Subject: Special Issue on Statistical Signal Extraction and Filtering**

Computational Statistics and Data Analysis, Special Issue on

STATISTICAL SIGNAL EXTRACTION AND FILTERING

http://www.elsevier.com/locate/csda

The need to extract signals and other components from time series is a

requirement in many empirical sciences, including Medicine,

Engineering, Economics and Climatology, to name but a few. Nowadays, a

wide variety of methods are available, including Wiener--Kolmogorov

Filtering, Kalman Filtering, Principal Components Analysis, and

Wavelet Analysis. Some of the methods have been conceived in the time

domain and others have originated in the frequency domain. A few of

the methods may be interpreted equally in both domains. The majority

demand skilful use of the computer for their successful

implementation.

Give the variety of the available methods of Statistical Signal

Extraction and Filtering, and given the diversity of the subject areas

in which they are applied, there are plentiful opportunities for cross

fertilisation and technology transfer. We therefore invite submissions

for a special issue of Computational Statistics & Data Analysis

devoted this topic. We will consider papers addressing the use of

computational and numerical methods for solving theoretical and

practical issues associated with filtering and signal extraction

algorithms, the impact of the techniques on the relevant subject

areas, and specific applications involving computing and data

analysis.

The papers submitted to the special issue should contain both

computational and substantive (i.e. subject area) components. Authors

who are uncertain of the suitability of their papers for the special

issue should contact the special issue editors. All papers submitted

must contain original unpublished work that is not being submitted for

publication elsewhere. Manuscripts submitted to this special issue

will be refereed according to standard procedures for Computational

Statistics and Data Analysis. The journal is also interested in

receiving submissions in the broader areas of time-series analysis,

which might be considered for inclusion in the special issue or in

regular issues. Information about the journal can be found at

http://www.elsevier.com/locate/csda

The DEADLINE for submissions is January 31, 2004.

The editorial process is expected to proceed rapidly thereafter

Submission electronically is encouraged. Please e-mail a postscript

OBJECTIVES

Continuous constraints are a natural way to represent

many practical problems and the knowledge they involve.

Such constraints may be simple or complex, linear or

non-linear and may, or may not, involve transcendental

functions. They are widely used to express, for example,

chemical or mechanical models, process descriptions,

building codes or cost restrictions. Many industrial

problems involving continuous constraints can be modeled

as continuous constraint satisfaction and optimization

problems (CSOPs). In practice, such models are often large

in size and non-linear.

As the preceding workshop, this workshop focuses on

complete solving techniques for continuous CSOPs that

provide all solutions with full rigor. Less rigorous solution

techniques are not excluded, since they may be part of

complete relevant techniques. Complete solution techniques

guarantee that all the constraints - e.g. security or

tolerance criteria - are satisfied and the global optima

identified. Completeness would thus benefit directly the

quality and reliability of decisions or analyses based on

the provided solutions. This has obvious implications in

many industrial and economic areas.

None of the existing approaches for solving non-linear

CSOPs is fully satisfactory in practice. Non-linear

programming techniques are routinely used and can solve

large-scale non-linear problems. However, they are

complete only in the convex case and if round off errors

are controlled. In contrast, constraint programming solvers

preserve completeness, but suffer from poor scalability.

The respective strengths of mathematical and constraint

programming appear however to be highly complementary and a

number of recent developments showed that there is a lot to

be gained by merging the different inference techniques they

provide and by combining their specific advantages.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together communities

from global optimization, mathematical programming and

constraint programming, giving the opportunity to promote

presentation and discussion of ongoing work on solving

techniques for continuous CSOPs. The workshop aims at

encouraging cross-fertilization between the various

approaches, including the study of adapted cooperation

strategies between mathematical and constraint programming,

and of new representations and abstractions for which they

can efficiently interact.

TOPICS

------

Relevant topics include, but are by no means restricted

to the following:

* Solution techniques for global optimization problems

* Integration of constraint programming with non-linear

programming techniques

* Linear and nonlinear convex enclosures of nonlinear programs

* Semidefinite programming techniques for global optimization

* Improved consistency techniques for continuous constraints

* Combination of symbolic methods with mathematical and

constraint programming techniques

* Solution techniques for under-constrained systems

* Adaptation of sparse matrix techniques to the non-linear case

* Representation and exploitation of monotonicity and

convexity properties

* Abstractions based on convex decomposition

* Partial boundary representation based on critical points

and topological abstractions
