New robust solver/container: Iterative eigendecomposition:
The new iterative eigen decomposition functionality is derived from: Passalacqua et al.'s OpenQBMM (openqbmm.org/), which is mostly derived from JAMA (math.nist.gov/javanumerics/jama/).
New field function object: Parallel low-memory dynamic mode decomposition:
STDMD (i.e. Streaming Total Dynamic Mode Decomposition) is a variant of a data-driven dimensionality reduction method. STDMD is being used as a mathematical post-processing tool to compute a set of dominant modes out of a given flow (or dataset) each of which is associated with a constant frequency and decay rate, so that dynamic features of a given flow may become interpretable, and tractable. Among other Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) variants, STDMD is presumed to provide the general DMD method capabilities alongside economised and feasible memory and CPU usage.

New extensive, true-false type unit tests for Matrix classes
Resolved bugs (If applicable)
Improved robustness in Moore-Penrose matrix inverse function
Details of new models (If applicable)
A verification example for STDMD: Two-dimensional steady-inflow cylinder test:
Left-top = MATLAB (using serial data) Left-bottom = OpenFOAM (serial) Right-top = MATLAB (using parallel data) Right-bottom = OpenFOAM (parallel/8-procs)
- STDMD is in its beta phase; therefore, small-to-medium changes in input/output interfaces and internal structures should be expected in the next versions depending on the unknown
- Peer-review, or any type of feedback for any part of the code is more than welcomed:
- Low risk to the existing code status.
