LinBox high performance kernels meeting

July 16th - 21st, 2012, LIP, ENS-Lyon, Lyon, France

Tentative Schedule:
Location: Salle LES LILAS, 4th floor
Hour Friday Saturday

10:00 Saunders Eberly

14:00 Pauderis Theveny
15:00 Revol Youse
16:00 coffee coffee
16:30 discussion and code sprints

This workshop will be very informal. The subject is high performance kernels for exact linear algebra including the use of code generation for high performance. All those involved in HPAC and/or interested in the subject are welcome to join.


The focus is on areas of linear algebra where high performance parallel kernels can be of benefit. These topics include block blackbox methods and numeric/symbolic hybrid algorithms.

Dave Saunders - Pep talk on block blackbox methods and LinBox 2.
Pascal Giorgi - Block methods based on Sigma bases
Colton Pauderis - High order lifting
Nathalie Revol - Interval arithmetic standardization
Wayne Eberly - Block methods, small fields, early termination
George Yuhasz - Block Coppersmith algorithm and rank
Philipe Theveny - Interval arithmetic matrix multiplication
Bryan Youse - Numeric/symbolic nonsingular rational system solving


Eberly, Giesbrecht, Giorgi, Jeannerod, Johnson, Louvet, Pauderis, Revol, Saunders, Storjohann, Theveny, Vialla, Villard, Youse, Yuhasz, ...
