Talk Title: Efficient Solution of Large Overdetermined Systems of Equations by a Monte Carlo Method
Abstract: Large overdetermined system of linear equations, expressed as A x = b, arises from applications such as seismic imaging. The rows of the matrix A can be randomly encoded and lumped up, resulting in a matrix with much fewer number of rows, thereby allowing a more efficient solution. This manipulation step can be embedded in least-squares iterative solution of the original system of equations. At each iteration, an independently encoded and lumped matrix is in effect, guiding the update of x, in the least-squares sense. Overall, this approach results in significant savings in computational cost. Experiments in seismic imaging validate the merits of the proposed method.\n
