General usage information

SuperLU contains a set of subroutines to solve a sparse linear system A*X=B. It uses Gaussian elimination with partial pivoting (GEPP).

This is the sequential implementation of the library.

Please see superlu-mt for a multithreaded/shared memory parallelism version (i.e. can use multiple cores on a single node).

Please see superlu-dist for a distributed memory/MPI version (i.e can use multiple nodes).

The following environmental variables have been defined:

  • \$SUPERLU_ROOT has been set to the root of the superlu installation
  • \$SUPERLU_LIBDIR points to the directory containing the libraries
  • \$SUPERLU_INCDIR points to the directory containing the header files

You will probably wish to use these by adding the following flags to your compilation command (e.g. to CFLAGS in your Makefile):

  • -I\$SUPERLU_INCDIR
and the following flags to your link command (e.g. LDFLAGS in your Makefile):
  • -L\$SUPERLU_LIBDIR -Wl,-rpath,\$SUPERLU_LIBDIR
