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.

Sequential matrix diagonalisation (SMD) refers to a family of algorithms to iteratively approximate a polynomial matrix eigenvalue decomposition. Key is to transfer as much energy as possible from off-diagonal elements to the diagonal per iteration, which has led to fast converging SMD versions involving judicious shifts within the polynomial matrix. Through an exhaustive search, this paper determines the optimum shift in terms of energy transfer. Though costly to implement, this scheme yields an important benchmark to which limited search strategies can be compared. In simulations, multiple-shift SMD algorithms can perform within 10% of the optimum energy transfer per iteration step.
