Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Parahermitian matrices arise in broadband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems or array processing, and require inversion in some instances. In this paper, we apply a polynomial eigenvalue decomposition obtained by the sequential best rotation algorithm to decompose a parahermitian matrix into a product of two paraunitary, i.e.lossless and easily invertible matrices, and a diagonal polynomial matrix. The inversion of the overall parahermitian matrix therefore reduces to the inversion of auto-correlation sequences in this diagonal matrix. We investigate a number of different approaches to obtain this inversion, and and assessment of the numerical stability and complexity of the inversion process.
