ScaLAPACK is a library of high-performance linear algebra routines for parallel distributed memory machines. ScaLAPACK solves:

  • Dense and banded linear systems

  • Least squares problems

  • Eigenvalue problems

  • Singular value problems


ScaLAPACK can be activated in several ways.

To load ScaLAPACK plus

ScaLAPACK can be activated using one of:

module load ScaLAPACK/2.0.2-gompi-2019b
module load ScaLAPACK/2.1.0-gompi-2020a
module load ScaLAPACK/2.1.0-gompi-2020b
module load ScaLAPACK/2.2.0-gompi-2022a-fb
module load ScaLAPACK/2.2.0-gompi-2022b-fb

Note that all load OpenBLAS, despite the change in the module naming convention for more recent toolchains.
