Title A Sparse Direct Solver for GPUs
Abstract The solution of Ax=b for sparse A is one of the core computation kernels ("dwarves") used in scientific computing. While there are many GPU iterative methods libraries available, these can only tackle a limited range of problems due to preconditioning requirements. On the CPU, black box direct solvers are often the first port of call for more challenging problems, however little GPU support is present in existing libraries. We present a new direct solver library capable of performing entirely on GPU factorization and solve for symmetric problems. The talk will cover our solution to a number of the challenges involved in making this reality, and present results across a number of application areas including FEM and Optimization.
