Experiments on orthogonalization by biorthogonal representations of orthogonal projectors

By Miroslav Andrle and Laura Rebollo-Neira


AbstractA number of experiments are performed with the aim of enhancing a particular feature arising when biorthogonal sequences are used for the purpose of orthogonalization. It is shown that an orthogonalization process executed by biorthogonal sequences and followed by a re-orthogonalization step admits four numerically different realizations. The four possibilities are originated by the fact that, although an orthogonal projector is by definition a self-adjoint operator, due to numerical errors in finite precision arithmetic the biorthogonal representation does not fulfil such a property. In the experiments presented here one of the realizations is shown clearly numerically superior to the remaining three
