A new method to construct iteration\r\nfunctions that allow calculating arbitrary p-th roots and their inverses of\r\nsymmetric positive definite matrices is presented. We show that the order of\r\nconvergence is at least quadratic and that adaptively adjusting a parameter q\r\nalways leads to an even faster convergence. In this way, a better performance\r\nthan with previously known iteration schemes is achieved. The efficiency of the\r\niterative functions is demonstrated for various matrices with different\r\ndensities, condition numbers and spectral radii.","lang":"eng"}],"language":[{"iso":"eng"}],"volume":25,"date_updated":"2019-01-03T13:12:46Z","user_id":"24135","type":"journal_article","project":[{"_id":"32","name":"Performance and Efficiency in HPC with Custom Computing","grant_number":"PL 595/2-1"}],"issue":"2","intvolume":" 25","publication":"Communications in Computational Physics","_id":"21","title":"A General Algorithm to Calculate the Inverse Principal p-th Root of Symmetric Positive Definite Matrices"}]
