Gaussian quadrature for matrix valued functions on the unit circle

Ann Sinap


The Gaussian quadrature formulas for matrix valued functions on the unit circle are described. It is shown how the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a unitary lower block Hessenberg matrix can be used to compute an approximation of a given matrix integral on the unit circle. A parallel algorithm for this purpose has been implemented on a IBM SP1 and some examples are worked out.
