in relation with a topic I am concerned about as of today, which is to develop a C example for the solution of a general banded system using ScaLAPACK, I have noticed that when I try to read about how can a general banded matrix be stored, prior to attain the computational solution, in the User's Guide, i.e. here: http://netlib.org/scalapack/slug/node89.html, there is no mentioning of these matrices.
My related topic is here: http://icl.cs.utk.edu/lapack-forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4227
There, I am basically asking how to start writing such a code.
Thanks in advanced.
