Title A new sparse LDLT solver using A Posteriori Threshold Pivoting
Abstract We describe version 2.0 of the SPRAL Sparse Symmetric Indefinite Direct Solver (SSIDS). Version 1 performed the factorization only on a single GPU. The new version adds support for CPU and hybrid execution, capable of utilising multiple GPUs. Notably, the CPU algorithm uses OpenMP 4.0 tasks to implement a multifrontal algorithm with dense factorizations using a posteriori threshold pivoting based on the same threshold technique as traditional threshold partial pivoting.
