In this paper, spectral properties and computational performance of a generalized block triangular preconditioner for symmetric saddle point problems are discussed in detail. We will provide estimates for the region containing both the nonreal and the real eigenvalues and generalize the results of Simoncini (Appl Numer Math 49:63�80, 2004) and Cao (Appl Numer Math 57:899�910, 2007). Finally, numerical experiments of the model Stokes problem are reported.

    Classical optimization methods like Steepest Descent Method (SDM) and Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno (BFGS) can solve many optimization problems. However, in case of new complex optimization problems (e.g., CEC2005 and CEC2010) with many local optima, they usually do not find the global...

    A two-person saddle-point game with approximately given input data is examined. Since, in games of this type, the search for an equilibrium point is unstable with respect to perturbations in the input data, two variants of the regularized extragradient method are proposed. Their convergence is...

The discrete problem is embedded in a continuous model that closely matches it on the discrete sample space, with saddlepoint approximation yielding an inference that is almost exact...

    We present reduced basis approximations and associated rigorous a posteriori error bounds for the Stokes equations in parametrized domains. The method is built upon a penalty formulation for saddle point problems and provides error bounds admitting affine geometric variations with relative ease....

    The potential energy surface of the tetratomic molecule HCCF is determined by the U(4) algebraic method. The combination coefficients in the Hamiltonian are gotten from fitting the spectroscopic data. The molecular properties, such as, force constants and dissociation energies, are obtained in...
