NAME

PZMAX1 - compute the global index of the maximum element in absolute value of a distributed vector sub( X )  

SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE PZMAX1(
N, AMAX, INDX, X, IX, JX, DESCX, INCX )

    
INTEGER INDX, INCX, IX, JX, N

    
COMPLEX*16 AMAX

    
INTEGER DESCX( * )

    
COMPLEX*16 X( * )
 

PURPOSE

PZMAX1 computes the global index of the maximum element in absolute value of a distributed vector sub( X ). The global index is returned in INDX and the value is returned in AMAX,

where sub( X ) denotes X(IX:IX+N-1,JX) if INCX = 1,

                       X(IX,JX:JX+N-1) if INCX = M_X.

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

Because vectors may be viewed as a subclass of matrices, a distributed vector is considered to be a distributed matrix.

When the result of a vector-oriented PBLAS call is a scalar, it will be made available only within the scope which owns the vector(s) being operated on. Let X be a generic term for the input vector(s). Then, the processes which receive the answer will be (note that if an operation involves more than one vector, the processes which re- ceive the result will be the union of the following calculation for each vector):

If N = 1, M_X = 1 and INCX = 1, then one can't determine if a process row or process column owns the vector operand, therefore only the process of coordinate {RSRC_X, CSRC_X} receives the result;

If INCX = M_X, then sub( X ) is a vector distributed over a process row. Each process part of this row receives the result;

If INCX = 1, then sub( X ) is a vector distributed over a process column. Each process part of this column receives the result;

Based on PZAMAX from Level 1 PBLAS. The change is to use the

The serial version was contributed to LAPACK by Nick Higham for use with ZLACON.

 

ARGUMENTS
