ScaLAPACK is an acronym for Scalable Linear Algebra Package or Scalable LAPACK. It is a library of high-performance linear algebra routines for distributed memory message-passing MIMD computers and networks of workstations supporting parallel virtual machine (PVM) and/or message passing interface (MPI). It is a continuation of the LAPACK project, which designed and produced analogous software for workstations, vector supercomputers, and shared memory parallel computers. Both libraries contain routines for solving systems of linear equations, least squares problems, and eigenvalue problems. The goals of both projects are efficiency, scalability, reliability, portability, flexibility, and ease of use.Users who plan to run ScaLAPACK on top of PVM [68] or MPI [64, 110] must also have PVM and/or MPI available. ... A comprehensive Installation Guide for ScaLAPACK [24] is also available; refer to section 1.7 for further details. Using a Worldanbsp;...
