Q = I - tau * v * v'
where tau is a real scalar and v is a real vector.
If tau = 0, then Q is taken to be the unit matrix.
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 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
Because vectors may be viewed as a subclass of matrices, a distributed vector is considered to be a distributed matrix.
If SIDE = 'Left' and INCV = 1, then the row process having the first
entry V(IV,JV) must also have the first row of sub( C ). Moreover,
MOD(IV-1,MB_V) must be equal to MOD(IC-1,MB_C), if INCV=M_V, only
the last equality must be satisfied.
If SIDE = 'Right' and INCV = M_V then the column process having the
first entry V(IV,JV) must also have the first column of sub( C ) and
MOD(JV-1,NB_V) must be equal to MOD(JC-1,NB_C), if INCV = 1 only the
last equality must be satisfied.
The vector v in the representation of Q. V is not used if TAU = 0.
where LCM is the least common multiple of NPROW and NPCOL and LCM = ILCM( NPROW, NPCOL ), LCMP = LCM / NPROW, LCMQ = LCM / NPCOL,
IROFFC = MOD( IC-1, MB_C ), ICOFFC = MOD( JC-1, NB_C ), ICROW = INDXG2P( IC, MB_C, MYROW, RSRC_C, NPROW ), ICCOL = INDXG2P( JC, NB_C, MYCOL, CSRC_C, NPCOL ), MpC0 = NUMROC( M+IROFFC, MB_C, MYROW, ICROW, NPROW ), NqC0 = NUMROC( N+ICOFFC, NB_C, MYCOL, ICCOL, NPCOL ),
ILCM, INDXG2P and NUMROC are ScaLAPACK tool functions; MYROW, MYCOL, NPROW and NPCOL can be determined by calling the subroutine BLACS_GRIDINFO.
Alignment requirements ======================
The distributed submatrices V(IV:*, JV:*) and C(IC:IC+M-1,JC:JC+N-1) must verify some alignment properties, namely the following expressions should be true:
MB_V = NB_V,
If INCV = 1, If SIDE = 'Left', ( MB_V.EQ.MB_C .AND. IROFFV.EQ.IROFFC .AND. IVROW.EQ.ICROW ) If SIDE = 'Right', ( MB_V.EQ.NB_A .AND. MB_V.EQ.NB_C .AND. IROFFV.EQ.ICOFFC ) else if INCV = M_V, If SIDE = 'Left', ( MB_V.EQ.NB_V .AND. MB_V.EQ.MB_C .AND. ICOFFV.EQ.IROFFC ) If SIDE = 'Right', ( NB_V.EQ.NB_C .AND. ICOFFV.EQ.ICOFFC .AND. IVCOL.EQ.ICCOL ) end if
