Computation of the matrix $p$th root and its Fréchet derivative by integrals

João R. Cardoso


We present new integral representations for the matrix $p$th root and its Fréchet derivative and then investigate the computation of these functions by numerical quadrature. Three different quadrature rules are considered: composite trapezoidal, Gauss-Legendre and adaptive Simpson. The problem of computing the matrix $p$th root times a vector without the explicit evaluation of the $p$th root is also analyzed and bounds for the norm of the matrix $p$th root and its Fréchet derivative are derived.
