Lyon, France

Matrices that arise from a large range of problems in mathematics, physics, engineering etc. typically display a characteristic structure, such as sparsity patterns or a rank structure (e.g., quasi*semi-separable, Toeplitz-like etc.). Exploiting this structure is the key to the design of more efficient algorithms.
*

The study of structured matrices is an interdisciplinary field that places itself at a crossroads between symbolic computation (uni- and multivariate polynomial computation, matrix polynomials...), numerical linear algebra (solution of linear systems, classical and generalized eigenvalue problems, functions of matrices...), and more generally all applications that involve structured problems.

*The conference aims to provide an opportunity for researchers from several fields to present their results, exchange ideas, develop and improve collaborations.*
