SUPERLU_OPENMP
Sparse Linear Equation Solver with OpenMP


SUPERLU_OPENMP, C programs which illustrate the use of the SUPERLU_OPENMP library, a version of SUPERLU compiled with the OpenMP parallel programming interface, for the fast direct solution of large sparse systems of linear equations.

SUPERLU_OPENMP contains a set of subroutines to solve a sparse linear system A*X=B. It uses Gaussian elimination with partial pivoting (GEPP). The columns of A may be preordered before factorization; the preordering for sparsity is completely separate from the factorization.

SUPERLU_OPENMP is implemented in ANSI C, and must be compiled with an ANSI C compiler. It provides functionality for both real and complex matrices, in both single and double precision. The initial letter of a routine name indicates the arithmetic type and precision:

SUPERLU_OPENMP includes functions to read a sparse matrix from a file in the Harwell-Boeing sparse matrix format.

Examples and Tests:

Many of the examples read the matrix from a file, which uses the Harwell-Boeing sparse matrix format. These matrices include:


PCLINSOL uses CGSSV to solve a linear system one time. The program reads the matrix from the file cg20_cua.txt. Single precision complex arithmetic is used.


PSLINSOL uses SGSSV to solve a linear system one time. The program reads the matrix from the file g20_rua.txt. Single precision real arithmetic is used.
