The sparse matrix solver has become the bottleneck in a Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis circuit simulator. It is difficult to parallelize the sparse matrix solver because of the high data dependence during the numerical LU factorization. In this brief, a parallel LU factorization algorithm is developed on shared-memory computers with multicore central processing units, based on KLU algorithms. An Elimination Scheduler (EScheduler) is proposed to represent the data dependence… CONTINUE READING
