Problem 1 1.a (10 points) Suppose A R n × n . Define A (0) = A and denote by A ( k ) the Schur complement of A ( k - 1) with respect to e T 1 A ( k - 1) e 1 for k = 1 , . . . , n - 1. For each 0 k n - 1, let γ k be the maximum magnitude of all the elements in A ( k ) . Define a growth factor μ for the series of Schur complements as μ = max 0 k n - 1 γ k γ 0 . Determine μ for the symmetric matrix A = 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 1 2 3 3 1 2 3 4 . Justify your answer. 2
1.b (i) (10 points) Propose an algorithm that determines whether or not a given n × n matrix is symmetric positive definite. You may assume that computations

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
