### Solving $\det{(A+\epsilon B)}=0$ for large, symmetric and dense $A$ and $B$

In an algorithm I am writing, I need to solve the equation $$\det{(A+\epsilon B)} = 0,$$ for the smallest value of $\epsilon$, given large ($n$x$n$ ideally up to 150x150), dense and symmetric A ...

### What are the counterparts in Wolfram to left and right division of a matrix in other programming language, e.g. Julia and MATLAB?

Sometimes, to find the inverse of a matrix is a labor-consuming task, or even "disgusting", especially when the matrix is "ill". It is said, e.g. in Julia, that the left/right division operation is ...

### InverseFunction's domain is not the range of the function that was inverted

I wrote a function to calculate how long of a period has past when a planet traverses an angle theta from perihelion in an orbit of a given eccentricity. ...

### Can I use Compile to speed up InverseCDF?

I'm repeatedly issuing the command P = InverseCDF[NormalDistribution[0, 1], T] where T is either a 36- or 64-vector of real numbers (points in the unit ...

### Inverse of Normal Distribution CDF incorrect for large value?

I have a function F which is the CDF of the standard normal distribution. The inverse of F should be infinity at 1. However, I ...

### Easiest way to have an approximation of binary entropy inverse

I call $H_2$ the function $H_2(x) = -x \ln(x)-(1-x) \ln(1-x)$ It is the binary entropy. I call $g(x)=H_2((1+x)/2)$ This last function is bijective on $[0;1]$. I would like to have an inverse, or ...

### Inverse of a multivalued function

I try to get the inverse of a simple function like x^2,x≥0. Still, when I use InverseFunction Mathematica gives me back -(y^0.5) ...

### Is there a fast way to get the diagonal of the inverse of a banded Hermitian matrix?

Since inverting a matrix is often a bad idea, I am wondering if there is a better way to get just the diagonal of the inverse without inverting the whole thing. Note I need the whole diagonal, not the ...
