Subject: Ωd problem | Transfer matrix | Mathematical Physics | Matrix Sturm-Liouville problem | 34L16 | Quadratic eigenvalues | Numerical stability
The transfer matrix method is usually employed to study problems described by $N$ equations of matrix Sturm--Liouville (MSL) kind. In some cases a numerical degradation (the so called $\Omega d$ problem) appears thus impairing the performance of the method. We present h... View more
