A non-linear structure preserving matrix method for the low rank approximation of the Sylvester resultant matrix

By J.R. Winkler and M. Hasan

Abstract

A non-linear structure preserving matrix method for the computation of a structured low rank approximation S((f) over bar , (g) over bar) of the Sylvester resultant matrix S(f , g) of two inexact polynomials f = f(y) and g = g(y) is considered in this paper. It is shown that considerably improved results are obtained when f (y) and g(y) are processed prior to the computation of S((f) over bar , (g) over bar), and that these preprocessing operations introduce two parameters. These parameters can either be held constant during the computation of S((f) over bar , (g) over bar), which leads to a linear structure preserving matrix method, or they can be incremented during the computation of S((f) over bar, (g) over bar), which leads to a non-linear structure preserving matrix method. It is shown that the non-linear method yields a better structured low rank approximation of S((f) over bar , (g) over bar) and that the assignment of f (y) and g(y) is important because S((f) over bar , (g) over bar) may be a good structured low rank approximation of S(f, g), but S((f) over bar , (g) over bar) may be a poor structured low rank approximation of S (g f) because its numerical rank is not defined. Examples that illustrate the differences between the linear and non-linear structure preserving matrix methods, and the importance of the assignment off (y) and g(y), are shown.
