ScaLAPACK_SETUP

For a detailed description of MPI Requirements see “Using ScaLAPACK Enhanced Routines” in the Introduction of this manual. |

This routine sets up a processor grid and calculates default values for various entities to be used in mapping a global array to the processor grid. All processors in the BLACS context call the routine.

Required Arguments

M — The row dimension of the global array for which the local array dimensions are to be calculated. (Input)

N — The column dimension of the global array for which the local array dimensions are to be calculated. (Input)

NSQUARE —Input logical which indicates whether the block used for mapping the global array to the processor grid must be square. If the block must be square, set NSQUARE to .TRUE., otherwise, set it to .FALSE.. (Input)

GRID1D — Input logical which indicates whether the processor grid is to be one dimensional or two dimensional. Set GRID1D to .TRUE. if the grid is to be one dimensional. Otherwise, set GRID1D to .FALSE.. (Input)

FORTRAN 90 Interface

Generic: CALL ScaLAPACK_SETUP (M, N, NSQUARE, GRID1D)

Description

Subroutine ScaLAPACK_SETUP creates a processor grid based on the number of processors being used and the GRID1D logical supplied by the user. The argument, NSQUARE, is supplied because some ScaLAPACK routines require that the row and column blocking factors be equal. GRID1D is supplied for those routines which require that the processor grid be one dimensional. ScaLAPACK_SETUP also establishes values for MP_M, MP_N, MP_NPROW, MP_NPCOL, MP_MB, MP_NB, MP_PIGRID, MP_ICTXT, MP_NSQUARE, and MP_GRID1D in the IMSL Fortran Library module GRIDINFO_INT. The above entities are defined as follows:

MP_M — The row dimension of the primary array which is to be distributed among the processors.

MP_N — The column dimension of the primary array which is to be distributed among the processors.

MP_NPROW — The number of rows in the processor grid.

MP_NPCOL — The number of columns in the processor grid.

MP_MB — The row blocking factor to be used in distributing the array.

MP_NB — The column blocking factor to be used in distributing the array.

MP_PIGRID — The pointer to the processor grid, MP_IGRID.

MP_ICTXT — The BLACS context ID associated with the processor grid.

MP_NSQUARE — Logical indicating whether or not the block used for mapping the global array to the processor grid must be square.

MP_GRID1D — Logical indicating whether or not the processor grid must be one dimensional.

GRIDINFO_INT is used by MPI_SETUP_INT so users do not need to explicitly use GRIDINFO_INT since they will be using MPI_SETUP_INT when they use MPI.
