== Introduction ==
'''Hama''' is a parallel matrix computational package based on Hadoop Map/Reduce. ''(Hama
is in korean, which means 'Hippo').'' It will be useful for a massively largescale ''Numerical
Analysis'' and ''Data Mining'', which need the intensive computation power of matrix inversion,
e.g. linear regression, PCA, SVM and etc. It will be also useful for many scientific applications,
e.g. physics computations, linear algebra, computational fluid dynamics, statistics, graphic
rendering and many more.

+ == The parallel time complexity of Hama ==
+ === Addition/Substraction ===
+ * The matrix add/sub requires table full scan twice.
+ * The total time spent by these operation is given by O(n^2^/mappers).
+
+ === Multiplication ===
+ * The Multiplication requires (n + 1) table full scan irrespective of the number of mapper.
+ * Each map processor requires O(n^2^) for the communication and O(n^3^/mappers) the computation.
