Application Details

  • Description: A library of high-performance linear algebra routines for parallel distributed memory machines. ScaLAPACK solves dense and banded linear systems, least squares problems, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems.
  • Version: 2.0.2
  • Module: scalapack/intel/intelmpi/2.0.2
  • Licence: modified BSD license

Usage Examples


[username@login01 ~]$ module add scalapack/2.0.2


[username@login01 ~]$ module add scalapack/intel/intelmpi/2.0.2


The ScaLAPACK (or Scalable LAPACK) library includes a subset of LAPACK routines redesigned for distributed memory MIMD parallel computers. It is currently written in a Single-Program-Multiple-Data style using explicit message passing for interprocessor communication. It assumes matrices are laid out in a two-dimensional block cyclic decomposition.

  • ScaLAPACK is designed for heterogeneous computing and is portable on any computer that supports MPI.
  • ScaLAPACK depends on PBLAS operations in the same way LAPACK depends on BLAS.
