Sparse matrix factorization algorithms for general problems are typically characterized by irregular memory access patterns that limit their performance on parallel-vector supercomputers. For symmetric problems, methods such as the multifrontal method avoid indirect addressing in the innermost loops by using dense matrix kernels. However, no eecient LU… CONTINUE READING
