All routines appear in the order in which they are listed on the PBLAS Quick Reference Card.

Clicking on the name of a routine will take you to a description of that routine and its parameters.

Routine names are type-dependent. The lower case 'v' is replaced as shown in the following table to arrive at the correct routine name for a given data type:

v MEANING ----- ------------------------------ S Single precision real data D Double precision real data C Single precision complex data Z Double precision complex data

A description vector is associated with each 2D block-cyclicly distributed matrix. This vector stores the information required to establish the mapping between a matrix entry and its corresponding process and memory location.

In the following comments, the character _ should be read as "of the distributed matrix". Let A be a generic term for any 2D block cyclicly distributed matrix. Its description vector is DESC_A:

NOTATION STORED IN EXPLANATION --------------- ------------- --------------------------------------- DT_A (global) desc_A[DT_] The descriptor type. CTXT_A (global) desc_A[CTXT_] The BLACS context handle, indicating the BLACS process grid A is distribu- ted over. The context itself is global, but the handle (the integer value) may vary. M_A (global) desc_A[M_] The number of rows in the distributed matrix. N_A (global) desc_A[N_] The number of columns in the distribu- ted matrix. MB_A (global) desc_A[MB_] The blocking factor used to distribute the rows of the matrix. NB_A (global) desc_A[NB_] The blocking factor used to distribute the columns of the matrix. RSRC_A (global) desc_A[RSRC_] The process row over which the first row of the matrix is distributed. CSRC_A (global) desc_A[CSRC_] The process column over which the first column of the matrix is distributed. LLD_A (local) desc_A[LLD_] The leading dimension of the local array storing the local blocks of the distributed matrix A. LLD_A >= MAX(1,LOCp(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. LOCp( 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, LOCq( 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 LOCp() and LOCq() may be determined via a call to the ScaLAPACK tool function, NUMROC.

- LOCp( M ) = NUMROC( M, MB_A, MYROW, RSRC_A, NPROW ),
- LOCq( N ) = NUMROC( N, NB_A, MYCOL, CSRC_A, NPCOL ).

Because vectors may be seen as particular matrices, a distributed vector is considered to be a distributed matrix.
