Householder triangularization of a quasimatrix

Trefethen, Lloyd N. (2008) Householder triangularization of a quasimatrix. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



A standard algorithm for computing the QR factorization of a matrix A is Householder triangularization. Here this idea is generalized to the situation in which A is a quasimatrix, that is, a “matrix” whose “columns” are functions defined on an interval [a,b]. Applications are mentioned to quasimatrix leastsquares fitting, singular value decomposition, and determination of ranks, norms, and condition numbers, and numerical illustrations are presented using the chebfun system.
