New page:
ScaLAPACK (Scalable LAPACK) is a linear algebra library for parallel computers. Routines are
available to diagonalize or solve dense and narrow band systems of linear equations.
ScaLAPACK implements blockoriented LAPACK linear algebra routines, adding a special set of
communication routines to copy blocks of data between processors as required. Similar to LAPACK,
a single subroutine call typically carries out the necessary computations.
ScaLAPACK installations include the following libraries: scalapack, redist, pblas, tools,
blacs, blacsCinit, and blacsF77init.
== An meeting with Professor Choi J. which a member of ScaLAPACK ==
* What is the BlockOriented?
* Why use shared memory instead of files?
* Are there any ways (or methods) to handle to files?
* What are the relative merits and demerits of the ScaLAPACK?
* Performance Results?
And, In the last question
* What do you think about the Hama approaches?
