This course will present the state of the art in the development of parallel direct methods for sparse linear systems. Some of these methods are being implemented as black box solvers; the corresponding toolkits will be experimented in dedicated hand-on sessions.
The course will also present recent work on hybrid (direct / iterative) methods that better exploit the two-level structure of current parallel architectures.
Dense matrices (serial and parallel, 1D and 2D distributions)
