NAME

PCLACON - estimate the 1-norm of a square, complex distributed matrix A  

SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE PCLACON(
N, V, IV, JV, DESCV, X, IX, JX, DESCX, EST, KASE )

    
INTEGER IV, IX, JV, JX, KASE, N

    
REAL EST

    
INTEGER DESCV( * ), DESCX( * )

    
COMPLEX V( * ), X( * )
 

PURPOSE

PCLACON estimates the 1-norm of a square, complex distributed matrix A. Reverse communication is used for evaluating matrix-vector products. X and V are aligned with the distributed matrix A, this information is implicitly contained within IV, IX, DESCV, and DESCX.

Notes
=====

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
                               array A.
N_A (global) DESCA( N_ ) The number of columns in the global
                               array A.
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
                               distributed.
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 process column.
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

 

ARGUMENTS

N (global input) INTEGER
The length of the distributed vectors V and X. N >= 0.
V (local workspace) COMPLEX pointer into the local
memory to an array of dimension LOCr(N+MOD(IV-1,MB_V)). On the final return, V = A*W, where EST = norm(V)/norm(W) (W is not returned).
IV (global input) INTEGER
The row index in the global array V indicating the first row of sub( V ).
JV (global input) INTEGER
The column index in the global array V indicating the first column of sub( V ).
DESCV (global and local input) INTEGER array of dimension DLEN_.
The array descriptor for the distributed matrix V.
X (local input/local output) COMPLEX pointer into the
local memory to an array of dimension LOCr(N+MOD(IX-1,MB_X)). On an intermediate return, X should be overwritten by A * X, if KASE=1, A' * X, if KASE=2, where A' is the conjugate transpose of A, and PCLACON must be re-called with all the other parameters unchanged.
IX (global input) INTEGER
The row index in the global array X indicating the first row of sub( X ).
JX (global input) INTEGER
The column index in the global array X indicating the first column of sub( X ).
DESCX (global and local input) INTEGER array of dimension DLEN_.
The array descriptor for the distributed matrix X.
EST (global output) REAL
An estimate (a lower bound) for norm(A).
KASE (local input/local output) INTEGER
On the initial call to PCLACON, KASE should be 0. On an intermediate return, KASE will be 1 or 2, indicating whether X should be overwritten by A * X or A' * X. On the final return from PCLACON, KASE will again be 0.
