A SOR-like AVM for the maximal correlation problem

School of mathematics, Zunyi Normal College, Zunyi, Guizhou, 563006, P. R. China

In this paper, a SOR-like alternating variable method for computing the global solution of the maximal correlation problem is presented. The monotone convergence of the SOR-like alternating variable method is proved. Numerical experiments show the effciency of our method.
