In this paper, a finite element analysis to approximate the solution of an obstacle problem for a static shallow shell confined in a half space is presented. To begin with, we establish, by relying on the properties of enriching operators, an estimate for the approximate bilinear form associated with the problem under consideration. Then, we conduc...

The well-known Reid-Harris expansions, applied to the stream function formulation, and the projection-diffusion Chebyshev Stokes solver, in primitive variables, are used to compute the fundamental Stokes eigenmodes of each of the symmetry families characterizing the Stokes solutions in the square. The numerical accuracy of both methods, applied wit...

In this work, we are presenting an efficient way to compute the geometric mean of two positive definite matrices times a vector. For this purpose, we are inspecting the application of methods based on Krylov spaces to compute the square root of a matrix. These methods, using only matrix-vector products, are capable of producing a good approximation...

We explain in this article how the famous Belgian astronomer and physicist Georges Lemaître, a specialist in the theory of relativity, rediscovered, during the Second World War from Gauss’ work, Aitken’s Δ2 process. He called his discovery the rational iteration method and used it to solve an ordinary differential equation. After giving some histor...

This work concerns the useful and large class of all piecewise Chebyshevian splines, in the sense of splines with pieces taken from different Extended Chebyshev spaces all of the same dimension, and with connection matrices at the knots. The subclass of those which are interesting for applications, and in particular for design, is known to be chara...

In this paper, we trace back the genesis of Aitken’s Δ2 process and Shanks’ sequence transformation. These methods, which are extrapolation methods, are used for accelerating the convergence of sequences of scalars, vectors, matrices, and tensors. They had, and still have, many important applications in numerical analysis and in applied mathematics...

We show in this paper how the convergence of an algorithm for matrix completion can be significantly improved by applying Wynn’s ε-algorithm. Straightforward generalization of the scalar ε-algorithm to matrices fails. However, accelerating the convergence of only the missing matrix elements turns out to be very successful.
