Description

Routine LFSRG computes the solution of a system of linear algebraic equations having a real general coefficient matrix. To compute the solution, the coefficient matrix must first undergo an LU factorization. This may be done by calling either LFCRG or LFTRG. The solution to Ax = b is found by solving the triangular systems Ly = b and Ux = y. The forward elimination step consists of solving the system Ly = b by applying the same permutations and elimination operations to b that were applied to the columns of A in the factorization routine. The backward substitution step consists of solving the triangular system Ux = y for x.

LFSRG and LFIRG both solve a linear system given its LU factorization. LFIRG generally takes more time and produces a more accurate answer than LFSRG. Each iteration of the iterative refinement algorithm used by LFIRG calls LFSRG. The underlying code is based on either LINPACK , LAPACK, or ScaLAPACK code depending upon which supporting libraries are used during linking. For a detailed explanation see Using ScaLAPACK, LAPACK, LINPACK, and EISPACK in the Introduction section of this manual.

ScaLAPACK Usage Notes

The arguments which differ from the standard version of this routine are:

FACT0 — MXLDA by MXCOL local matrix containing the local portions of the distributed matrix FACT as output from routine LFCRG. FACT contains the LU factorization of the matrix A. (Input)

IPVT0 — Local vector of length MXLDA containing the local portions of the distributed vector IPVT. IPVT contains the pivoting information for the LU factorization as output from subroutine LFCRG or LFTRG/DLFTRG. (Input)

B0 — Local vector of length MXLDA containing the local portions of the distributed vector B. B contains the right-hand side of the linear system. (Input)

X0 — Local vector of length MXLDA containing the local portions of the distributed vector X. X contains the solution to the linear system. (Output)

If B is not needed, B and X can share the same storage locations.

If B is not needed, B and X can share the same storage locations.

All other arguments are global and are the same as described for the standard version of the routine. In the argument descriptions above, MXLDA and MXCOL can be obtained through a call to SCALAPACK_GETDIM (see Utilities) after a call to SCALAPACK_SETUP (see Utilities) has been made. See the ScaLAPACK Example below.

Examples

Example

The inverse is computed for a real general 3 × 3 matrix. The input matrix is assumed to be well-conditioned, hence, LFTRG is used rather than LFCRG.

USE LFTRG_INT

USE WRRRN_INT

! Declare variables

! Set values for A

A(1,:) = (/ 1.0, 3.0, 3.0/)

A(2,:) = (/ 1.0, 3.0, 4.0/)

A(3,:) = (/ 1.0, 4.0, 3.0/)

ScaLAPACK Example

The inverse of the same 3 × 3 matrix is computed as a distributed example. The input matrix is assumed to be well-conditioned, hence, LFTRG is used rather than LFCRG. LFSRG is called to determine the columns of the inverse. SCALAPACK_MAP and SCALAPACK_UNMAP are IMSL utility routines (see Chapter 11, “Utilities”) used to map and unmap arrays to and from the processor grid. They are used here for brevity. DESCINIT is a ScaLAPACK tools routine which initializes the descriptors for the local arrays.
