I was taken to the legacy code. Calculations performed procedure called "dynamic expansion", which essentially organizes the rows of Hesse matrix. Ordering algorithm is not clear to me

Row ordering gives a significant boost in speed solutions of equations. Tell me, please, which is why is this effect? Why change the order of rows in the Hessian accelerates calculation?

Thank you!

Welcome to math.SE! Please make sure that you completely explain any terms in your question in such a way that it is clear as possible. For example, define any non-standard terms such as "Hesse matrix", and identify what you mean by "the legacy code". – Ron Gordon Feb 7 '13 at 5:51
