Approximation of integral operators by ${\mathcal H}^2$-matrices with adaptive bases

Steffen Börm


${\mathcal H}^2$-matrices can be used to construct efficient approximations of discretized integral operators. The ${\mathcal H}^2$-matrix approximation can be constructed efficiently by interpolation, Taylor or multipole expansion of the integral kernel function, but the resulting representation requires a large amount of storage.

In order to improve the efficiency, local Schur decompositions can be used to eliminate redundant functions from an original approximation, which leads to a significant reduction of storage requirements and algorithmic complexity.
