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.

    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...

    An equilibrium model is proposed for a two-person saddle-point game with partially coincident or conflicting interests. Meaningful interpretations of such a game are discussed. Three variants of the extraproximal method for finding an equilibrium point are proposed, and their convergence is proved.

    This note investigates the sense in which saddlepoint approximations act as smoothers of discrete distributions. 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...
