Dev Days 1: Exact Linear Algebra

Dense GF(2)

  • implement LQUP decomposition [ClementPernet, MartinAlbrecht]

    • implement LQUP routine [Clement]

    • implement _mzd_addmul_weird [Clement]

    • implement LQUP basecase routine based on M4RI mzd_lqup_m4ri [MartinAlbrecht]

      • dont' zero out in _mzd_gauss_submatrix (!)

      • don't zero out below
      • remember rowswaps => P

      • remember Q[r] = c (translate to Lapack style later :-) )

    • implement TRSM routine [Clement]

    • implement inplace triangular matrix inversion mzd_trtri [Clement]

    • implement triangular triangular matrix multiplication mzd_trtrm [Clement]

    • implement column swaps [MartinAlbrecht]

    • implement column rotations [MartinAlbrecht]

    • implement memory efficient mzd_addmul_strassen [Martin]

      • See Clement's et al. paper on memory efficient Strassen-Winograd
  • implement Arne's asymptotically fast elimination algorithm [MartinAlbrecht]

  • implement multi-core multiplication with optimal speed-up
    • OpenMP seems to be nice and easy
    • 2 cores probably main target, but think about 4 cores too
  • improve efficiency of M4RM
    • try 7 instead of 8 Gray code tables to leave room for the actual matrix in L1 [MartinAlbrecht]

      • It seems slower to be slower to use 7 tables rather than 8
    • try say 16 tables instead of 8 on the Core2Duo [MartinAlbrecht]

    • try Bill Hart's idea for L1 cache efficiency on the Core2Duo [MartinAlbrecht]

      • The idea is: construct 8 gray code tables but use one once it is in L1 a lot to reduce before using the second
    • try to fit three matrices rather than two into L2 or understand why it works so good for two [MartinAlbrecht]

      • it works since once we've written the date we can go on computing and let a cache handle the rest
      • a cache miss for reading on the other hand really prevents us from computing
    • detect L1/L2 cache sizes at runtime and choose optimal parameters for them [MartinAlbrecht]

    • Implement memory management s.t. the sys time on Opterons decreases.
    • implement Bill's half table idea and benchmark it

Sparse GF(2) (and other small finite fields)

  • [Arne, Ralph, Clément, Rob Miller]
  • Sparse Reduced Echelon form (RPW)
    • Sparse Elimination:
      • improve LinBox gauss-domain

      • eclib sparse elimination
      • ....
  • ....

Hermite Normal Form

  • [Arne, Clément, William]
  • new algorithm, based on system solving (Arne Storjohann) -> already an implementation

    • integrate it in IML
    • benchmark it against Sage
  • generalization: block vector system solving
    • implementation
    • benchmark
  • LLL trick for the existing implementation in Sage (William & Clément)

Polynomial Matrix computations

  • [Burcin]
  • Nullspace computation (Burcin)

Cyclotomic linear algebra

  • [Rob Bradshaw, Craig, William]

P-adic linear algebra

  • [David Roe, Craig, David Cohet]

LinBox debianization and 1.1.6 spkgization

  • [mabshoff, Clément]
  • get rid of gmp++
  • generate and test linbox-1.1.6rc0.spkg
