This paper deals with the problem of updating simultaneously mass and stiffness matrices.

The new search direction is consistent with the first-order optimality condition for the simple constrained optimization problem, and makes the search step-size easier to determine. Convergence properties of the method are analyzed. Numerical...

The global Krylov subspace iterative methods are an attractive class of iterative solvers for solving linear systems with several right-hand sides.

Locality preserving projection (LPP), as a well-known technique for dimensionality reduction, is designed to preserve the local structure of the original samples which usually lie on a low-dimensional manifold in the real world.
