AbstractSeveral methods to solve a system of linear equations with real and complex coefficients exist. The most popular methods are Gauss-Jordan, L-U Decomposition, Gauss-Seidel, and Matrix Reduction. These methods are utilized to optimize run-time of the DLANET circuit analysis program. As concluded by this study, the Matrix Reduction method which is presently utilized in the DLANET program, results in run-times which are faster than the other solution methods studied in this paper for lower order systems. Similarly, the L-U Decomposition and Gauss-Jordan methods result in faster run-times than the other techniques for higher order systems. Finally, the Gauss-Seidel Iterative method, when incorporated into the DLANET program, has proven to be much slower than the other solution methods considered in this paper.
