This paper presents a block version of the LSMR algorithm for solving linear systems with multiple right-hand sides. The new algorithm is based on the block bidiagonalization and derived by minimizing the Frobenius norm of the resid ual matrix of normal equations. In addition, the convergence of the proposed algorithm is discussed. In practice, it is also observed that the Frobenius norm of the residual matrix decreases monotonically. Finally, numerical experiments from real applications are employed to verify the effectiveness of the presented method.https://ijnao.um.ac.ir/article_24446_501f6cca8dcc7164ecbf346b507d0bcb.pdf
