Name

HPL_pdtrsv Solve triu( A ) x = b.

Synopsis

`#include "hpl.h"`

`void` `HPL_pdtrsv(` `HPL_T_grid *` `GRID`, `HPL_T_pmat *` `AMAT` `);`

Description

HPL_pdtrsv solves an upper triangular system of linear equations. The rhs is the last column of the N by N+1 matrix A. The solve starts in the process column owning the Nth column of A, so the rhs b may need to be moved one process column to the left at the beginning. The routine therefore needs a column vector in every process column but the one owning b. The result is replicated in all process rows, and returned in XR, i.e. XR is of size nq = LOCq( N ) in all processes. The algorithm uses decreasing one-ring broadcast in process rows and columns implemented in terms of synchronous communication point to point primitives. The lookahead of depth 1 is used to minimize the critical path. This entire operation is essentially ``latency'' bound and an estimate of its running time is given by: (move rhs) lat + N / ( P bdwth ) + (solve) ((N / NB)-1) 2 (lat + NB / bdwth) + gam2 N^2 / ( P Q ), where gam2 is an estimate of the Level 2 BLAS rate of execution. There are N / NB diagonal blocks. One must exchange 2 messages of length NB to compute the next NB entries of the vector solution, as well as performing a total of N^2 floating point operations.
