This note covers two aspects of the state of the art of large numerical linear algebra problems. Firstly, we look at the current records for sparse and dense linear systems and eigenvalue problems on a variety of machines. Our second subject matter is perhaps more of a question than an answer. Here we explore why network topologies of a parallel machine are hardly ever used in ways that perhaps a graph theorist might envision , especially given that linear algebra, particularly dense linear… CONTINUE READING
