LANS Informal Seminar
"Block Tensor Computations"

DATE: March 7, 2011

TIME: 10:30:00 - 11:30:00
SPEAKER: Charles Van Loan, Cornell University
LOCATION: Building 240, Conference Center 1404-1405, Argonne National Laboratory

Will blocking become as important in tensor computations as it is in matrix computations?
I will address this question from several perspectives. Topics include (a) unfolding block tensors into block matrices, (b) a block-level connection between general tensor singular values and symmetric tensor eigenvalues, and (c) low-rank tensor approximation using the Kronecker product SVD.
