    An unbalance in a rotating flexible rotor causes excessive vibration and elastic deformations with subsequent malfunction and failure. In spite of different techniques deployed to reduce or eliminate rotor unbalance, it is impossible to remove the unbalance completely. The unbalance will only be...

    Variational basis-set formulations of the quantum mechanical reactive scattering problem lead to large, dense sets of equations. In previous work, we showed that the generalized minimal residual (GMRes) algorithm is sometimes competitive in terms of computer time with direct methods for these...
