Group meetings 2011/12. Semester 1
13 December 2011: Ramaseshan on
"Reducing communication in sparse matrix computations".
6 December 2011: Yuji Nakatsukasa on recent work with Nick on backward stability of
iterations for computing the Polar decomposition.

15 November 2011: Craig Lucas.
In this talk I will describe the journey we took in implementing Ruediger
and Nick's Nearest Correlation Matrix algorithm efficiently in the NAG
library. Along the way I'll highlight software and architecture
optimizations and how it maps to multicore.
