PCGETRS solves a system of distributed linear equations
sub( A ) denotes A(IA:IA+N-1,JA:JA+N-1), op( A ) = A, A**T or A**H
and sub( B ) denotes B(IB:IB+N-1,JB:JB+NRHS-1).
Each global data object is described by an associated description
vector. This vector stores the information required to establish
the mapping between an object element and its corresponding process
and memory location.
Let A be a generic term for any 2D block cyclicly distributed array.
Such a global array has an associated description vector DESCA.
In the following comments, the character _ should be read as
"of the global array".
NOTATION STORED IN EXPLANATION
--------------- -------------- --------------------------------------
DTYPE_A(global) DESCA( DTYPE_ )The descriptor type. In this case,
DTYPE_A = 1.
CTXT_A (global) DESCA( CTXT_ ) The BLACS context handle, indicating
the BLACS process grid A is distribu-
ted over. The context itself is glo-
bal, but the handle (the integer
value) may vary.
M_A (global) DESCA( M_ ) The number of rows in the global
N_A (global) DESCA( N_ ) The number of columns in the global
MB_A (global) DESCA( MB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute
the rows of the array.
NB_A (global) DESCA( NB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute
the columns of the array.
RSRC_A (global) DESCA( RSRC_ ) The process row over which the first
row of the array A is distributed.
CSRC_A (global) DESCA( CSRC_ ) The process column over which the
first column of the array A is
LLD_A (local) DESCA( LLD_ ) The leading dimension of the local
array. LLD_A >= MAX(1,LOCr(M_A)).
Let K be the number of rows or columns of a distributed matrix,
and assume that its process grid has dimension p x q.
LOCr( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a process
would receive if K were distributed over the p processes of its
Similarly, LOCc( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a
process would receive if K were distributed over the q processes of
its process row.
The values of LOCr() and LOCc() may be determined via a call to the
ScaLAPACK tool function, NUMROC:
LOCr( M ) = NUMROC( M, MB_A, MYROW, RSRC_A, NPROW ),
LOCc( N ) = NUMROC( N, NB_A, MYCOL, CSRC_A, NPCOL ).
An upper bound for these quantities may be computed by:
LOCr( M ) <= ceil( ceil(M/MB_A)/NPROW )*MB_A
LOCc( N ) <= ceil( ceil(N/NB_A)/NPCOL )*NB_A
This routine requires square block data decomposition ( MB_A=NB_A ).
TRANS (global input) CHARACTER
Specifies the form of the system of equations:
= 'N': sub( A ) * X = sub( B ) (No transpose)
= 'T': sub( A )**T * X = sub( B ) (Transpose)
= 'C': sub( A )**H * X = sub( B ) (Conjugate transpose)
N (global input) INTEGER
The number of rows and columns to be operated on, i.e. the
order of the distributed submatrix sub( A ). N >= 0.
NRHS (global input) INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the distributed submatrix sub( B ). NRHS >= 0.
A (local input) COMPLEX pointer into the local
memory to an array of dimension (LLD_A, LOCc(JA+N-1)).
On entry, this array contains the local pieces of the factors
L and U from the factorization sub( A ) = P*L*U; the unit
diagonal elements of L are not stored.
IA (global input) INTEGER
The row index in the global array A indicating the first
row of sub( A ).
JA (global input) INTEGER
The column index in the global array A indicating the
first column of sub( A ).
DESCA (global and local input) INTEGER array of dimension DLEN_.
The array descriptor for the distributed matrix A.
