Abstract:
The difficult term in the condition number $\| A\n \, \| A^{-1}\|$ of a large linear system $Ap=y$ is the spectral norm of $A^{-1}$. To eliminate this term, we here replace worst case analysis by a probabilistic argument. To be more precise, we randomly take $p$ from a ball with the uniform distribution and show that then, with a certain probability close to one, the relative errors $\| \de p\|$ and $\| \de y\|$ satisfy $\| \delta p\| \le C \| \delta y\|$ with a constant $C$ that involves only the Frobenius and spectral norms of $A$. The success of this argument is demonstrated for Toeplitz systems and for the problem of sampling multivariate trigonometric polynomials on nonuniform knots. The limitations of the argument are also shown.
