In this paper a new renumbering method for minimising the profile of sparse matrices is proposed and its efficiency is surveyed through a number of numerical experiments. The characteristics of the new method are (1) it is effective only for the purpose of the profile minimisation; (2) it does not order nodes in accordance with the level structure constructes from the starting node; and (3) it is applicable for any kind of two-dimensional system.
