How do their minds process formulas and concepts that, for most of the rest of the world's population, remain mysterious and beyond comprehension? Is there a connection between mathematical creativity and mental illness?
In The Mind of the Mathematician, internationally famous mathematician Ioan James and... | | **Matrix computations and semiseparable matrices**
The general properties and mathematical structures of semiseparable matrices were presented in volume 1 of *Matrix Computations and Semiseparable Matrices*. In volume 2, Raf Vandebril, Marc Van Barel, and Nicola Mastronardi discuss the theory of structured eigenvalue and singular value computations for semiseparable matrices. These... |
