About
-----------------

Invertastic is a utility for performing large-scale dense SPD matrix
inversions on parallel computers. For full details, please see

A. Gray, "Invertastic: Large-scale Dense Matrix Inversion", 
ARCHER Whitepaper available at www.archer.ac.uk/documentation/white-papers/

This software is openly available as a central package on the UK
ARCHER national supercomputing facility at /work/y07/y07/itastic

Options
----------------

Invertastic accepts the following arguments:

 --size <N>

 	specify size N for NxN square matrix to be inverted

[--check] 

 	if specified, the code will multiply the original matrix by
	the resulting inverse, compare this product (element-wise)
	with the expected identity matrix, and print the maximum
	deviation.


[--input <full path to input file>] 

	if specified, the code will read the input matrix from the
        specified file. The format should be binary with NxN 8-byte
        (double precision) entries and no headers. If not specified to
        allow performance benchmarking and testing the code will
        create an SPD matrix on-the-fly using random numbers.


[--output <full path to output file>] 

	if specified, the code will write the binary output matrix to
	the specified file. The format will be binary with NxN 8-byte
	(double precision) entries and no headers.


Compilation
----------------

Invertastic depends on MPI, PBLAS, BLACS, and ScaLAPACK libraries. The
Makefile is currently configured for the ARCHER UK national
supercomputing facility, using Intel MKL. To compile on ARCHER:

module swap PrgEnv-cray PrgEnv-intel
cd src
make clean
make

To configure for other machines, the Makefile should be edited to
specify the appropriate paths.



Execution
---------------

This distribution contains a sample job script, run_archer.sh, for running
invertastic on ARCHER using the PBS job submission system.
