Multiplication of Matrices With Different Sparseness Properties on Dynamically Reconfigurable Meshes

Received05 May 1997


Algorithms for multiplying several types of sparse n x n-matrices on dynamically reconfigurable n x n-arrays are presented. For some classes of sparse matrices constant time algorithms are given, e.g., when the first matrix has at most kn elements in each column or in each row and the second matrix has at most kn nonzero elements in each row, where k is a constant. Moreover, O(kn ) algorithms are obtained for the case that one matrix is a general sparse matrix with at most kn nonzero elements and the other matrix has at most k nonzero elements in every row or in every column. Also a lower bound of Ω(Kn ) is proved for this and other cases which shows that the algorithms are close to the optimum.
