Hierarchically semiseparable (HSS) matrix techniques are emerging in constructing superfast direct solvers for both dense and sparse linear systems. Here, we develop a set of novel parallel algorithms for key HSS operations that are used for solving large linear systems. These are parallel rank-revealing QR factorization, HSS constructions with hierarchical compression, ULV HSS factorization, and HSS solutions. The HSS tree-based parallelism is fully exploited at the coarse level. The…
