The class of formula15-matrices allows an approximate matrix arithmetic with almost linear complexity. In the present paper, we apply the formula15-matrix technique combined with the Kronecker tensor-product approximation to represent the inverse of a discrete elliptic operator in a hypercube formula19 in the case of a high spatial dimension d. In this data-sparse format, we also represent the operator exponential, the fractional power of an elliptic operator as well as the solution operator of the matrix Lyapunov-Sylvester equation. The complexity of our approximations can be estimated by formula23, where formula25 is the discrete problem size.
