Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are emerging as an attractive computing platform for general purpose computations due to their extremely high floating-point processing performance and their comparatively low cost. In the context of dense linear algebra, the LU decomposition represents a fundamental step in many computationally intensive scientific… CONTINUE READING
