Abstract:

This report describes algorithms, performance, applications, and user information associated with a code which solves a memory-resident single banded symmetric matrix equation on the CRAY-1. The code is available as part of a library of CAL-coded equation-solvers. The mathematical software described herein is the result of experimental research on vector algorithms for the direct solution of finite element grids arising in structural analysis. It represents what is thought to be the best compromise between vectorizability, sparsity exploitation, and user convenience for such problems for the CRAY-1. Author
