### Approximately, at any given time, what proportion of the world's total HPC resources are dedicated towards inverting matrices?

I had heard in a lecture, perhaps 15 years ago, that the vast majority of the world's HPC resources were dedicated to solving linear systems by iterative methods. I seem to remember it was 90%. I can'...

### computing the inverse of a large block diagonal sparse matrix in r

I would like to compute the inverse of some large block diagonal sparse matrix. The number of rows and columns is somewhat over 50,000. The blocks are 12 by 12 and are sparse (27 non zero elements). ...

### Exact analytical matrix inversion of sparse 100x100 matrices in C++

I need to invert a matrix. Of course, I'm not the first person in this situation, and I know that there's a wealth of powerful libraries out there, of which I only know a couple. That being said, ...
Let $\Sigma$ be a covariance matrix (e.g. symmetric positive definite). For arbitrary vectors $\epsilon$, I need to compute $\chi^2 \equiv \epsilon^\top\Sigma^{-1}\epsilon$, which I do using a ...
I know a square self-adjoint matrix $S_{vv}$ and I want to find: $S_{rr} = HS_{vv}H^{\dagger}$ where $\dagger$ denotes conjugate transpose. I do not know $H$ but I do know $H^{-1}$. What is the ...
