klin-package: Calculate and solve linear equations with Kronecker...

Description Details Author(s) References


The package implements efficient ways to evaluate and solve equations of the form Ax=b, where A is a kronecker product of matrices. Functions to solves least squares problems of this type are also included.

The most important functions are klin.eval and klin.solve, which evaluate A %*% x or solve for x in A %*% x == b where A is a Kronecker product and x and b are conforming vectors.

Convenience functions for solving least squares problems with Kronecker structure (klin.ls and klin.preparels) are also included. The function klin.klist forms the Kronecker product of a list of matrices.
