Optimization of a Quadratic Function with a Circulant Matrix


A problem arising in the control of flutter in compression systems via mistuning is formulated as maximizing a quadratic function with a circulant matrix over a set of vectors whose every component can take one of three values (the three level problem) or one of two values (the two level problem).
