Proof of relation between the generalized singular values of gsvd(A,B) and gsvd(B,A)

The background for this is the 5-output form of the GSVD: [U,V,X,C,S] = gsvd(A,B) returns unitary matrices U and V, a (usually)...

GUI crashes when using eigs with a nonzero shift on a large generalised eigenvalue problem.

Ideally this shouldn't crash, but produce an out-of-memory error. However, for example on Linux there is the "out-of-memory kill...

GPU speed up for pcg() is disappointing

It looks like you can simply replace your current call to pcg with x = pcg(A, b, tol, 5000, @(y) L\y, @(y)L'\y); as the error ...
