Computations to Enhance the Performance while Achieving the 64-bit Accuracy

Alfredo Buttari, Jack Dongarra, Jakub Kurzak, Piotr Luszczek, and Stanmire Tomov

By using a combination of 32-bit and 64-bit floating point arithmetic the performance of many sparse linear algebra algorithms can be significantly enhanced while maintaining the 64-bit accuracy of the resulting solution. These ideas can be applied to sparse multifrontal and supernodal direct techniques, and sparse iterative techniques such as Krylov subspace methods. The approach presented here can apply not only to conventional processors but also to exotic technologies such as Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), Graphical Processing Units (GPU), and the Cell BE processor.
