ABS methods are a large class of methods, based upon the Egervary rank reducing algebraic process, first introduced in 1984 by Abaffy, Broyden and Spedicato for solving linear algebraic systems, and later extended to nonlinear algebraic equations, to optimization problems and other fields; software based upon ABS methods is now under development. Current ABS literature consists of about 400 papers. ABS methods provide a unification of several classes of classical algorithms and more efficient
