Matrices that arise from a large range of problems in mathematics, physics, engineering etc. typically display a characteristic structure, such as sparsity patterns or a rank structure (e.g., quasi/semi-separable, Toeplitz-like etc.). Exploiting this structure is the key to the design of more efficient algorithms.

The study of structured matrices is an interdisciplinary field that places itself at a crossroads between symbolic computation (uni- and multivariate polynomial computation, matrix polynomials...), numerical linear algebra (solution of linear systems, classical and generalized eigenvalue problems, functions of matrices...), and more generally all applications that involve structured problems.

This event aims at providing an opportunity for researchers from several fields to present their results, exchange ideas, develop and strengthen collaborations.

Limited financial support is available to cover the travel expenses of a few participants. If your situation requires such a support, please write an email to the organizers to express your demand.
