Matrix Factorization: ScaLAPACK Computational Routines

This section describes the ScaLAPACK routines for matrix factorization. The following factorizations are supported:
  • LU factorization of general matrices
  • LU factorization of diagonally dominant-like matrices
  • Cholesky factorization of real symmetric or complex Hermitian positive-definite matrices
You can compute the factorizations using full and band storage of matrices.
