We investigate the problem of symmetrically permuting a square sparse matrix into a block diagonal form with overlap. This permutation problem arises in the parallelization of an explicit formulation of the multiplicative Schwarz preconditioner and a more recent block overlapping banded linear solver as well as its application to general sparse linear(More)
In this whitepaper, we describe the problem of permuting sparse square matrices into block diagonal form with overlap (BDO) and propose a graph partitioning algorithm for solving this problem. A block diagonal matrix with overlap is a block diagonal matrix whose consecutive diagonal blocks may overlap. The objective in this permutation problem is to(More)
