- A nonlinear ParaExp algorithm

*with M. J. Gander and M. Petcu.*
We propose and analyse a variant of the ParaExp algorithm for nonlinear initial value problems. We show that this algorithm is mathematically equivalent to a parareal iteration where the coarse integrator solves linear subproblems on overlapping time intervals. A numerical example with a nonlinear wave equation illustrates the convergence behaviour.

- Compressing variable-coefficient exterior Helmholtz problems via RKFIT

*with V. Druskin and L. Knizhnerman.*
The efficient discretization of Helmholtz problems on unbounded domains is a challenging task, in particular, when the wave medium is nonhomogeneous. We present a new numerical approach for compressing finite difference discretizations of such problems, thereby giving rise to efficient perfectly matched layers (PMLs) for nonhomogeneous media.

- A rational deferred correction approach to PDE-constrained optimization

*with J. W. Pearson.*
We devise a new deferred correction method for coupled systems of time-dependent PDEs, allowing one to iteratively improve the accuracy of low-order time stepping schemes. We test our approach on a number of PDE-constrained optimization problems and obtain solution accuracies far superior to that achieved when solving a single discretized problem, in particular in cases where the accuracy is limited by the time discretization.

- Parallelization of the rational Arnoldi algorithm

*with M. Berljafa.*
The rational Arnoldi algorithm is a commonly used procedure for computing an orthonormal basis of a rational Krylov space.
Our analysis of this algorithm allows to control the growth of the condition number of the nonorthogonal basis being implicitly computed. As a consequence we obtain a significantly more accurate and reliable parallel rational Arnoldi algorithm.

Numerical experiments demonstrate the possible computational savings especially for pencils whose eigenvalues are not well separated and when the dimension of the search space is only slightly larger than the number of wanted eigenvalues. The new approach improves both convergence robustness and load balancing when FEAST runs on multiple search intervals in parallel.

- Convergence of restarted Krylov subspace methods for Stieltjes functions of matrices

*with A. Frommer and M. Schweitzer.*
To approximate matrix functions by Krylov methods, restarts may become mandatory due to storage requirements or computational complexity.
However, the question under which circumstances convergence of these methods can
be guaranteed has remained largely unanswered. We prove convergence for the class of Stieltjes
functions of Hermitian positive definite matrices. We also propose
a modification of the Arnoldi method which guarantees convergence for positive real matrices.

- On the convergence of rational Ritz values

*with B. Beckermann and R. Vandebril.* The rational Krylov method is a method for computing parts of the spectrum of
a large Hermitian matrix. It is well known that its convergence behavior depends not only on the
distribution of eigenvalues but also on the choice of the poles which are free parameters. We characterize the region of good convergence for the rational Arnoldi
process, and obtain various results on the rate of approximation of a given eigenvalue by a rational
Ritz value.

- A generalization of the steepest descent method for matrix functions

*with M. Afanasjew, M. Eiermann, and O. G. Ernst.* We consider the special case of the restarted Arnoldi method for approximating the product of a
function of a Hermitian matrix with a vector which results when the restart length is set to one. When applied
to the solution of a linear system of equations, this approach coincides with the method of steepest descent. We
show that the method is equivalent to an interpolation process in which the node sequence has at most two points of
accumulation. This knowledge is used to quantify the asymptotic convergence rate.

illustrated for three parabolic initial value problems, requiring the evaluation of exp(A)b.

- Convergence Estimates of Krylov Subspace Methods for the Approximation of Matrix Functions Using Tools from Potential Theory

This diploma thesis reviews various definitions of matrix functions and polynomial Krylov methods for their approximation. Relations to polynomial interpolation and best approximation problems are made. The convergence behavior of Ritz values associated with Hermitian matrices is investigated. A new algorithm for the solution of the constrained energy problem with a measure supported in the complex plane is developed. This algorithm is then used to study Ritz values associated with a normal non-Hermitian matrix.
