Subject: [PATCH] books/bookvolbib add Davi16, Survey of Direct Sparse Methods
Goal: Axiom Numerics

"Wilkinson defined a sparse matrix as one with enough zeros that it
pays to take advantage of them. This informal yet practical definition
captures the essence of the goal of direct methods for solving sparse
matrix problems. They exploit the sparsity of a matrix to solve
problems economically: much faster and using far less memory than if
all the entries of a matrix were stored and took part in explicit
computations. These methods form the backbone of a wide range of
problems in computational science. A glimpse of the breadth of
applications relying on sparse solvers can be seen in the origins of
matrices in published matrix benchmark collections. The goal of this
survey article is to impart a working knowledge of the underlying
theory and practice of sparse direct methods for solving linear
systems and leastsquares problems, and to provide an overview of the
algorithms, data structures, and software available to solve these
problems, so that the reader can both understand the methods and know
how best to use them."

 "We describe the Univerity of Florida Sparse Matrix Collection, a large
 and actively growing set of sparse matrices that arise in real
 applications. The Collection is widely used by the numerical linear
 algebra community for the development and performance evaluation of
 sparse matrix algorithms. It allows for robust and repeatable
 experiments: robust because performance results with artificially
 generated matrices can be misleading, and repeatable because matrices
 are curated and made publicly available in many formats. Its matrices
 cover a wide spectrum of domains, including those arising from
 problems with underlying 2D or 3D geometry (as structural engineering,
 computational fluid dynamics, model reduction, electromagnetics,
 semiconductor devices, thermodynamics, materials, acoustics, computer
 graphics/vision, robitics/kinematics, and other discretizations) and
 those that typically do not have such geometry (optimization, circuit
 simulation, economic and financial modeling, theoretical and quantum
 chemistry, chemical process simulation, mathematics and statistics,
 power networks, and other networks and graphs). We provide software
 for accessing and managing the Collection, from MATLAB, Mathematica,
 Fortran, and C, as well as an online search capability. Graph
 visualization of the matrices is provided, and a new multilevel
 coarsening scheme is proposed to facilitate this task."
