A New Iterative Scheme for Solving the Semi Sylvester Equation


In this paper, the Galerkin projection method is used for solving the semi Sylvester equation. Firstly the semi Sylvester equation is reduced to the multiple linear systems. To apply the Galerkin projection method, some propositions are presented. The presented scheme is compared with the L-GL-LSQR algorithm in point of view CPU-time and iteration number. Finally, some numerical experiments are presented to show that the efficiency of the new scheme.
