It seems that you are becoming the sparse expert!
Would it be possible that you collect the information on sparse matrices
in the http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook?
Something like
  http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook/SparseMatrices
with (e.g.) topics like:
  - sparse matrix formats
  - operations with sparse matrices
  - operations on sparse matrics
  - solving sparse matrix eigenvalue problems
    - presumably best on a subpage
      http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook/SparseMatrices/EigenvalueProblems
would be extremely helpful.
Your code on solving large Sylvester equations
would surely be interesting as well.

Best,

Arnd
