Computation of Lyapunov exponents of linear systems:
overview and algorithms
Prof. Luca Diegi,
School of Mathematics,
Georgia Tech; currently
at the University of
The definition of Lyapunov exponents and their meaning will
be recalled. Basic techniques used to approximate Lyapunov
exponents of linear systems will be reviewed. Particular
attention will be paid to techniques based on the QR
decomposition of the matrix solution, and some new algorithms
for computing this decomposition will be given.
