Parallel Sparse Matrix Computations Using the PINEAPL Library: A Performance Study
Abstract. The Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd is currently participating in the European HPCN Fourth Framework project on Parallel Industrial NumErical Applications and Portable Libraries (PINEAPL). One of the main goals of the project is to increase the suitability of the existing NAG Parallel Library for dealing with computationally intensive industrial applications by appropriately extending the range of library routines. Additionally, several industrial applications are being ported onto parallel computers within the PINEAPL project by replacing sequential code sections with calls to appropriate parallel library routines. A substantial part of the library material being developed is concerned with the solution of PDE problems using parallel sparse linear algebra modules. These modules provide support for crucial computational tasks such as graph partitioning, preconditioning and iterative solution of linear systems. Additional support routines assist users in distributing and assemb...
