Overview of ScaLAPACK Routines

The model of the computing environment for ScaLAPACK is represented as a one-dimensional array of processes (for operations on band or tridiagonal matrices) or also a two-dimensional process grid (for operations on dense matrices). To use ScaLAPACK, all global matrices or vectors should be distributed on this array or grid prior to calling the ScaLAPACK routines.
ScaLAPACK is closely tied to other components, including BLAS, BLACS, LAPACK, and PBLAS.

Product and Performance Information

1

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
