Title A null-space approach for symmetric saddle point systems with a non zero (2,2) block
Abstract Null-space methods have long been used to solve large-scale symmetric saddle point systems of equations in which the k k (2; 2) block is zero. This paper focuses on the case where the (2; 2) block is non zero. A novel null-space approach is proposed to transform the saddle point system into another symmetric saddle point system of the same order but with a zero (2; 2) block of order at most 2k. Success of any null-space approach is dependent on the construction of a suitable null-space basis. The not uncommon case of the off-diagonal block being a wide matrix that has far fewer rows than columns and that may be dense is considered. A number of approaches are explored with the aim of balancing stability of the transformed system with sparsity. Linear least squares problems that contain a small number of dense rows arising from practical applications are used to illustrate our ideas and to explore their potential for solving large-scale systems.
