PLASMA source code version 2.8.0

Source code for PLASMA libraries.

We strongly recommend to use the latest version of the plasma installer, which will automatically download this package and install all other dependencies if required.

This package contains the following updates:

  • Fix a synchronization problem in STEDC functions
  • Reduce the amount of computation performed in UNGQR/UNGLQD family routines by taking advantage of the Identity structure. It is not anymore required to initialize the Q to identity before calling those functions.
  • New routines PLASMA_[sdcz]lascal[_Tile[_Async]], similar to Scalapack p[sdcz]lascal, to scale a matrix by a constant factor. This function does not handle numerical overflow/underflow as zlascl from Lapack
  • New routines PLASMA_[sdcz]geadd[Tile[_Async]], and PLASMA[sdcz]tradd[_Tile[_Async]], similar to Scalapack p[sdcz]geadd, and p[sdcz]tradd to add two general, or trapezoidal, matrices together.
  • Add functions to the API in order to give the opportunity to users to mix submission to the Quark runtime system of asynchronous Plasma calls and personal kernels
  • Update Lapacke interface to 3.6.0
  • Bug fix on Frobenius norm
  • Add a missing check on descriptors alignment with tiles that may cause unreported trouble to user using sub-descriptors, especially with recursive algorithms.
