template<typename NumberType >  
class  ::ScaLAPACKMatrix 
A class taking care of setting up a twodimensional processor grid. For example an MPI communicator with 5 processes can be arranged into a 2x2 grid with the 5th processor being inactive:
A shared pointer to this class is provided to ScaLAPACKMatrix matrices to perform blockcyclic distribution.
Note that this class allows to setup a process grid which has fewer MPI cores than the total number of cores in the communicator.
Currently the only place where one would use a ProcessGrid object is in connection with a ScaLAPACKMatrix object.

Utilities::MPI::ProcessGrid::ProcessGrid  (  const MPI_Comm &  mpi_communicator, 
const unsigned int  n_rows,  
const unsigned int  n_columns  
) 
Constructor for a process grid with n_rows
and n_columns
for a given mpi_communicator
. The product of rows and columns should be less or equal to the total number of cores in the mpi_communicator
.

Utilities::MPI::ProcessGrid::ProcessGrid  (  const MPI_Comm &  mpi_communicator, 
const unsigned int  n_rows_matrix,  
const unsigned int  n_columns_matrix,  
const unsigned int  row_block_size,  
const unsigned int  column_block_size  
) 
Constructor for a process grid for a given mpi_communicator
. In this case the process grid is heuristically chosen based on the dimensions and blockcyclic distribution of a target matrix provided in n_rows_matrix
, n_columns_matrix
, row_block_size
and column_block_size
.
The maximum number of MPI cores one can utilize is \(\min\{\frac{M}{MB}\frac{N}{NB}, Np\}\), where \(M,N\) are the matrix dimension and \(MB,NB\) are the block sizes and \(Np\) is the number of processes in the mpi_communicator
. This function then creates a 2D processor grid assuming the ratio between number of process row \(p\) and columns \(q\) to be equal the ratio between matrix dimensions \(M\) and \(N\).
For example, a square matrix \(640x640\) with the block size \(32\) and the mpi_communicator
with 11 cores will result in the \(3x3\) process grid.
