PARALLEL APPROACH TO SOLVE OF THE DIRECT SOLUTION OF LARGE SPARSE SYSTEMS OF LINEAR EQUATIONS
Keywords:linear equation solver, domain, parallelization, threads, distributed memory, communication
AbstractThe paper deals with parallel approach for the numerical solution of large, sparse, non-symmetric systems of linear equations, that can be part of any finite element software. In this contribution, the differences between the sequential and parallel solution are highlighted and the approach to efficiently interface with distributed memory version of SuperLU solver is described.
