Function include/funm_nd.m is a Schur-Parlett algorithm for computing a function of a square matrix without using derivatives. It evaluates the nontrivial diagonal blocks in the Schur form using randomized approximate diagonalization with a diagonal perturbation.

The function works for an arbitrary function f at a square matrix A and requires only the ability to evaluate f itself; derivatives are not required.

Function test.m runs a simple test of the codes.

Details on the underlying algorithms can be found in the technical report:

All codes used for generating the data in the above report are included in this repository.

The code in this repository requires the Advanpix Multiprecision Computing Toolbox for MATLAB (
