Background (contd)

- A projection method using numerical integration
- Sakurai and Sugiura, A projection method for

generalized eigenvalue problems, - J. Comput. Appl. Math. (2003)
- Reduce the original problem to a small

generalized eigenvalue problem within a specified

region in the complex plane. - By solving the small problem, the eigenvalues

lying in the region can be obtained. - The main part of computation is to solve multiple

linear simultaneous equations. - Suited for parallel computation.

Objective of our study

- Previous approach
- Solve the linear simultaneous equations by an

iterative method. - The number of iterations needed for convergence

differs from one simultaneous equations to

another. - This brings about load imbalance between

processors, decreasing parallel efficiency. - Our study
- Solve the linear simultaneous equations by a

sparse direct solver without pivoting. - Load balance will be improved since the

computational times are the same for all linear

simultaneous equations.

Application of the sparse direct solver

- A and B sparse symmetric matrices, a

complex number

The coefficient matrix is a sparse complex

symmetric matrix.

- Application of the sparse direct solver
- For a sparse s.p.d. matrix, the sparse direct

solver provides an efficient way for solving the

linear simultaneous equations. - We adopt this approach by extending the sparse

direct solver to deal with complex symmetric

matrices.

The sparse direct solver

- Characteristics
- Reduce the computational work and memory

requirements of the Cholesky factorization by

exploiting the sparsity of the matrix. - Stability is guaranteed when the matrix is s.p.d.
- Efficient parallelization techniques are

available.

- Find a permutation of rows/columns that reduces
- computational work and memory requirements.

- Estimate the computational work and memory
- requirements.

symbolic factorization

- Prepare data structures to store the Cholesky
- factor.

triangular solution

Extension of the sparse direct solver to complex

symmetric matrices

- Algorithm
- Extension is straightforward by using the

Cholesky factorization for complex symmetric

matrices. - Advantages such as reduced computational work,

reduced memory requirements and parallelizability

are carried over. - Accuracy and stability
- Theoretically, pivoting is necessary when

factorizing complex symmetric matrices. - Since our algorithm does not incorporate

pivoting, accuracy and stability is not

guaranteed. - We examine the accuracy and stability

experimentally by comparing the results with

those obtained using GEPP.

- For each matrix, we solve the equations with the

sparse direct solver - (with MD and ND ordering) and GEPP.
- We compare the computational time and accuracy

of the eigenvalues.

- The sparse direct solver is two to over one

hundred times faster than GEPP, depending on the

nonzero structure.

solvers. - Also, the growth factor for the sparse solver

was O(1).

Conclusion

- Summary of this study
- We applied a complex symmetric version of the

sparse direct solver to a projection method for

generalized eigenvalue problems using numerical

integration. - The sparse solver succeeded in solving the linear

simultaneous equations stably and accurately,

producing eigenvalues that are as accurate as

those obtained by GEPP. - Future work
- Apply our algorithm to larger matrices arising

from quantum chemistry applications. - Construct a hybrid method that uses an iterative

solver when the growth factor becomes too large. - Parallelize the sparse solver to enable more than

N processors to be used.
