Recursive Approach in Sparse Matrix LU Factorization

Received20 Sep 2001
Accepted20 Sep 2001


This paper describes a recursive method for the LU factorization of sparse matrices. The recursive formulation of common linear algebra codes has been proven very successful in dense matrix computations. An extension of the recursive technique for sparse matrices is presented. Performance results given here show that the recursive approach may perform comparable to leading software packages for sparse matrix factorization in terms of execution time, memory usage, and error estimates of the solution.
