Induced Dimension Reduction (IDR) method

Click here to find out more about IDR(s): papers, MATLAB, Fortran and Python code and examples. IDR(s) is an efficient Krylov method for solving large sparse nonsymmetric systems of linear equations.

The figure shows the convergence of IDR(s) and Bi-CGSTAB for a Helmholtz problem.
IDR(s) is a short recurrence method. The overhead per iteration is comparable with that of Bi-CGSTAB.

A sustainable MRI device to diagnose hydrocephalus

Together with Andrew Webb (LUMC) and Rob Remis (TUD) we received an award to make a simple MRI scanner for use in developing countries.

See this movie about the need for a sustainable MRI device to diagnose hydrocephalus.
