Abstract

Numerous applications, including computational optimization and fluid dynamics, give rise to block linear systems of equations said to have the quasi-definite structure. In practical situations, the size or density of those systems can preclude a factorization approach, leaving only iterative methods as the solution technique. Known iterative methods, however, are not specifically designed to take advantage of the quasi-definite structure. This book discusses the connection between quasi-definite systems and linear least-squares problems, the most common and best understood problems in applied mathematics, and explains how quasi-definite systems can be solved using tailored iterative methods for linear least squares (with half as much work!). To encourage researchers and students to use the software, it is provided in MATLAB, Python, and Julia.
