An experiment with matrix inversion using block pivots is presented. Large scale matrix computations can often be performed more efficiently by use of partitioning. Such matrix manipulation lends itself to paged or cache memory systems since computation is staged to be completely performed in local blocks of controllable size. On other systems retrieval overhead can be balanced with computation for "in-memory/out-of-memory" applications. Parallelism in such schema leads to efficient utilization of some multiple processor environments. Timing results indicate, however, that choice of block size should not necessarily be dictated by hardware page size for most efficient operation and that classical methods of estimating computation times are not always adequate.

Inverting a matrix is a surprisingly difficult challenge. I have my own library of C# matrix routines. I like to control my own code rather than relying on magic black box implementations, and I generally prefer to implement matrices using a plain array-of-arrays style rather than using an OOP approach. I tested the code below. Thus, the norm of the residual is a bound for the relative precision of the approximate inverse matrix. This is an important difference between the problem of numerical inversion of a matrix and the solution of linear systems, where (for example, in orthogonal methods or methods of Gauss type) the residual is usually small, and the quality of the solution obtained depends on the conditioning.

Matrix inversion is inherently unstable, and mixing that with floating point numbers is asking for trouble. Saying C = B. inv(A) is the same as saying you want to solve AC = B for C. You can accomplish this by splitting up each B and C into two columns. I think the answer to this depends on the exact form of the matrix. A standard decomposition method (LU, QR, Cholesky etc.) with pivoting (an essential) is fairly good on fixed point, especially for a small 4x4 matrix. See the book 'Numerical Recipes' by Press et al. for a description of these methods.

Brown. matrix multiplication requires O(nω) element operations, then this formulation of block matrix inverse, applied re-cursively, leads to an O(nω) algorithm for inversion.

For concreteness, Strassen’s matrix multiplication [4] requires nlog 2 7 multiplications and 6(nlog 2 7 − n2) additive opera-tions (+, −), and the above formulas give matrix inversion.

As with other block-oriented methods, we do not require numerical stability. We are able to answer this question positively. We show such a block matrix inversion that is applicable in a wide variety of settings.

trix inversion. The standard numerical algorithm, as it is imple-mented in LAPACK [?], is composed of four stages: 1) calculating the LU factorization, 2) inverting the upper triangular U factor, 3) solving a linear system, whose solution yields inverse of the orig-inal matrix and 4) applying backward column pivoting on the in-verted matrix.

Numerical stability for linear algebra operations is usually associated with the matrix's condition number. A way of estimating the condition number is the ratio of the largest eigenvalue to the smallest eigenvalue, or the largest singular value to the smallest singular value.

For this approach to be efficient, the iteration must be done in sparse mode, i.e., with "sparse-matrix by sparse-vector" operations. Numerical dropping is applied to maintain sparsity; compared to previous methods, this is a natural way to determine the sparsity pattern of the approximate by: where A 1 is the inverse matrix.
