Abstract: Large-scale systems of linear equations appear in many fundamental numerical simulations and also in recent methods for data analytics. Hierarchical matrices (H-matrices) lie in-between dense and sparse scenarios, and providean efficient numerical tool to store an n × n dense matrix in compressed form achiving logarithmic costs in terms of storage and computations. Task-parallelism has been exposed as an efficient approach for the solution of dense and sparse linear algebra problems. Therefore, it is natural to target linear algebra problems that involve H-matrices.
After having investigated the multithreaded parallelization of the LU factorization of hierarchical matrices using the OpenMP and OmpSs task-parallel programming model and runtime, now it is time to focus on exploiting the functionalities of the recently released OmpSs new version.
