ScaLAPACK (Scalable LAPACK) is a linear algebra library for parallel computers. Routines are available to diagonalize or solve dense and narrow band systems of linear equations.
ScaLAPACK implements block-oriented LAPACK linear algebra routines, adding a special set of communication routines to copy blocks of data between processors as required. Similar to LAPACK, a single subroutine call typically carries out the necessary computations.
ScaLAPACK installations include the following libraries: scalapack, redist, pblas, tools, blacs, blacsCinit, and blacsF77init.
ScaLAPACK is also included in the MKL libraries. It may be used 'standalone' or as part of MKL.
Installed on: Blacklight.
To run a SCALAPACK job on Blacklight, follow these steps:
- Create a batch job which:
- Submit the job with the qsub command.
