Static LU Decomposition on Heterogeneous Platforms

Arnaud Legrand

In this paper, we deal with algorithmic issues on heterogeneous platforms. We concentrate on dense linear algebra kernels, such as matrix multiplication or LU decomposition. Block cyclic distribution techniques used in ScaLAPACK are no longer sufficient to balance the load among processors running at different speeds. The main result of this paper is to provide a static data distribution scheme that leads to an asymptotically perfect load balancing for LU decomposition, thereby providing solid foundations toward the design of a cluster-oriented version of ScaLAPACK.
