  • Mithila, Nasrin Hakim; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2016)
    Efficient determination of large sparse Hessian matrices leads to solving many optimization problems. Exploiting sparsity and symmetry of the Hessian matrix can reduce the number of function evaluations required to determine ...
  • Sultana, Marzia; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2016)
    Evaluation of the Hessian matrix of a scalar function is a subproblem in many numerical optimization algorithms. For large-scale problems often the Hessian matrix is sparse and structured, and it is preferable to exploit ...
