Getting Started with ScaLAPACK

The chapter begins by presenting a set of instructions to execute a ScaLAPACK example program, followed by the source code of Example Program #1. A detailed explanation of the example program is given, and finally the necessary steps to call a ScaLAPACK routine are described by referencing the example program.
