Abstract : One major objectives of the project entitled Sequential and Parallel Matrix Computations were to develop fast sequential and parallel matrix methods for a number of important linear algebraic problems that arise in design and analysis of linear control systems in state space form. Eighteen publications were accomplished during the cause of the grant, including such titles as An algorithm to assign eigenvalues in a Hessenberg matrix, Sequential and parallel computations and complexities for determining relative primeness, stability, and inertia, and On finding eigenvalue distribution of a matrix in several regions of the complex plane.
