Boosting the computation of the matrix exponential. (English) Zbl 1429.65093
Summary: This paper presents new Taylor algorithms for the computation of the matrix exponential based on recent new matrix polynomial evaluation methods. Those methods are more efficient than the well known Paterson-Stockmeyer method. The cost of the proposed algorithms is reduced with respect to previous algorithms based on Taylor approximations. Tests have been performed to compare the MATLAB implementations of the new algorithms to a state-of-the-art Padé algorithm for the computation of the matrix exponential, providing higher accuracy and cost performances.
