Subject: scalable parallel linear algebra
To: edwardyoon@apache.org
Hi Edward,
I've been watching the hema project with some interest. I noticed on
your blog that you mentioned learning of scalapack. I spent quite a
bit of time this summer installing and trying to use several different
parallel linear algebra packages. I thought you might also find these
two packages interesting:
SLEPc and PETSc are scalable libraries. SLEPc is a scalable library
for eigenvalue problem computations it is built on top of PETSc.
PETSc is a toolkit that allows techniques for sparse and nonsparse
linear algebra operations.

Trilinos is another project large scale linear algebra stuff. It's
made up of a bunch of packages some of which might be interesting to
you.

None of these packages are done in a Map Reduce framework. And you
might have already heard of them all. But I figured that you might be
interested to learn about them. They seem to have fairly active
communities of people working on them.
