Transfer functions and resolvent norm approximation of large matrices

V. Simoncini and E. Gallopoulos


A unifying framework for methods employed in the approximation of the resolvent norm of nonnormal matrices is presented. This formulation uses specific transfer functions, and it provides new information about the approximation properties of these methods and their application in computing the pseudospectrum of matrices.
