Below you can find the research topics that I have worked on in the past or I am working right now. Generally speaking, I am interested in parallel numerical algorithms for the solution of large-scale linear systems, eigenvalue problems, and problems in data analysis.





Numerical methods for the solution of linear systems

Mean relative error of a Monte Carlo stochastic estimator to approximate the diagonal of the inverse of a model covariance matrix.

  • Numerical methods for the solution of the symmetric eigenvalue problem

    The Newton Branch-hopping scheme to compute the two smallest eigenvalues of a 2D discretized Laplacian.

  • Trace of matrix functions

    An example of fitting the approximate diagonal of the matrix inverse using PCHIP. Red: the true diagonal entries. Blue: the original approximation. Green: The fitted approximation.
