In general, my research interests revolve around matrix analysis motivated by problems
from the theory of vibrations, stability, systems theory and control, signal
processing, and numerical analysis.
The mathematical form of the problems that interest me include
- quadratic eigenvalue problems,
- spectral and factorization theory
of more general matrix-valued functions,
- algebraic Riccati equations
and iterative methods for their solution,
- eigenvalue problems in
indefinite scalar product spaces,
- analytic perturbation theory,
- the numerical range and pseudospectra of matrix-valued functions,
- inverse quadratic eigenvalue problems.
