  OFFICE MEMO          sparse matrices                        Date:4/6/92
I am in need of information on sparse matrix packages for mathematica or other
suggestions how to handle 12x12 or even 20x20 matrices.  These consist of a
number of 2x2, 4x4 and 8x8 scattering matrices assembled along the diagonal of
a global scattering matrix, with most of the off-diagonal coefficients zero.  I
need to calculate the inverse, eigenvalues & eigenvectors, and evenyually
transforming to more compact global matrix.

Any information on an approach before I get started would be helpful.  Also,
has anyone worked on mapping optical polarization states onto the Poincare
sphere?  Thank you.
