Sparse Solver Routines

Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL)
provides user-callable sparsesolver software to solve real or complex, symmetric, structurally symmetric or nonsymmetric, positive definite, indefinite or Hermitian square sparse linear system of algebraic equations.
The terms and concepts required to understand the use of the
Intel® MKL
sparse solver routines are discussed in the
Appendix "Linear Solvers Basics"
. If you are familiar with linear sparse solvers and sparse matrix storage schemes, you can skip these sections and go directly to the interface descriptions.

Product and Performance Information


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.
