Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

In recent years, several algorithms for the iterative calculation of a polynomial matrix eigenvalue decomposition (PEVD) have been introduced. The PEVD is a generalisation of the ordinary EVD and uses paraunitary operations to diagonalise a parahermitian matrix. This paper addresses potential computational savings that can be applied to existing cyclic-by-row approaches for the PEVD. These savings are found during the search and rotation stages, and do not significantly impact on algorithm accuracy. We demonstrate that with the proposed techniques, computations can be significantly reduced. The benefits of this are important for a number of broadband multichannel problems.
