Existence and Computation of a Low Kronecker-Rank Approximant to the Solution of a Tensor System with Tensor Right-Hand Side

Lars Grasedyck


In this paper we construct an approximation to the solution $x$ of a linear system of equations $Ax=b$ of tensor product structure as it typically arises for finite element and finite difference discretisations of partial differential operators on tensor grids. For a right-hand side $b$ of tensor product structure we can prove that the solution $x$ can be approximated by a sum of ${\cal O}(\log(\varepsilon)^{2})$ tensor product vectors where $\varepsilon$ is the relative approximation error. Numerical examples for systems of size $1024^{256}$ indicate that this method is suitable for high-dimensional problems.
