Hierarchical Algorithms

Additional Info

  • ECTS credits: 6
  • University: Hamburg University of Technology
  • Semester: 3
  • Objectives:


    The module covers the theory of construction techniques for hierarchical matrices as well as their efficient implementation. Students learn to analyse the storage and computational complexities of the algorithms, adapt algorithms to problem settings of various applications and thus develop problem adapted variants.

  • Topics:


    Low rank matrices, Separable expansions, Hierarchical matrix partitions, Hierarchical matrices, Formatted matrix operations, Applications, Additional topics (e.g. H2 matrices, matrix functions, tensor products)
