The main motivating problem is the following: in the family of $d$-regular graphs, which graph $G$ maximize/minimize ... More

A Spectral Analysis of Subspace Enchanced PreconditionersApr 07 2013It is well-known that the convergence of Krylov subspace methods to solve linear system depends on the spectrum of the coefficient matrix, moreover, it is widely accepted that for both symmetric and unsymmetric systems Krylov subspace methods will converge ...

Remarks on PBW bases of Ringel-Hall algebras of cyclic quiversAug 22 2016In this paper, we give a recursive formula for the interesting PBW basis $E_{A}$ of composition subalgebras of Ringel-Hall algebras $\fkH_\vartri(n)$ of cyclic quivers after \cite{DengDuXiao2007generic}, and another construction of canonical bases of ...
