Publication# SPEEDING UP KRYLOV SUBSPACE METHODS FOR COMPUTING f(A)b VIA RANDOMIZATION

Abstract

This work is concerned with the computation of the action of a matrix function f(A), such as the matrix exponential or the matrix square root, on a vector b. For a general matrix A, this can be done by computing the compression of A onto a suitable Krylov subspace. Such compression is usually computed by forming an orthonormal basis of the Krylov subspace using the Arnoldi method. In this work, we propose to compute (nonorthonormal) bases in a faster way and to use a fast randomized algorithm for least -squares problems to compute the compression of A onto the Krylov subspace. We present some numerical examples which show that our algorithms can be faster than the standard Arnoldi method while achieving comparable accuracy.

Generalized minimal residual method

In mathematics, the generalized minimal residual method (GMRES) is an iterative method for the numerical solution of an indefinite nonsymmetric system of linear equations. The method approximates the solution by the vector in a Krylov subspace with minimal residual. The Arnoldi iteration is used to find this vector. The GMRES method was developed by Yousef Saad and Martin H. Schultz in 1986. It is a generalization and improvement of the MINRES method due to Paige and Saunders in 1975.

Matrix exponential

In mathematics, the matrix exponential is a matrix function on square matrices analogous to the ordinary exponential function. It is used to solve systems of linear differential equations. In the theory of Lie groups, the matrix exponential gives the exponential map between a matrix Lie algebra and the corresponding Lie group. Let X be an n×n real or complex matrix. The exponential of X, denoted by eX or exp(X), is the n×n matrix given by the power series where is defined to be the identity matrix with the same dimensions as .

Krylov subspace

In linear algebra, the order-r Krylov subspace generated by an n-by-n matrix A and a vector b of dimension n is the linear subspace spanned by the of b under the first r powers of A (starting from ), that is, The concept is named after Russian applied mathematician and naval engineer Alexei Krylov, who published a paper about it in 1931. Vectors are linearly independent until , and . Thus, denotes the maximal dimension of a Krylov subspace. The maximal dimension satisfies and . More exactly, , where is the minimal polynomial of .
