Abstract:
The efficient treatment of dense matrices arising, e.g., from the finiteelement discretisation of integral operators, requires special compressiontechniques. In this article we use the formula4-matrix representation thatapproximates the dense stiffness matrix in admissible blocks (correspondingto subdomains where the underlying kernel function is smooth) by low rankmatrices. The low rank matrices are assembled by a new hybrid algorithm(HCA) that has the same proven convergence as standard interpolation butalso the same efficiency as the (heuristic) adaptive cross approximation(ACA).
