Accelerated Solution of Sparse Linear Systems

Fresh from the NVIDIA Numeric Libraries Team, a white paper illustrating the use of the CUSPARSE and CUBLAS libraries to achieve a 2x speedup of incomplete-LU- and Cholesky-preconditioned iterative methods. The paper focuses on the Bi-Conjugate Gradient and stabilized Conjugate Gradient iterative methods that can be used to solve large sparse non-symmetric and symmetric positive definite linear systems, respectively. The paper also comments on the parallel sparse triangular solver, which is an essential building block in these algorithms.
