Chameleon: A dense linear algebra software for heterogeneous architectures
====================
Chameleon is a C library providing parallel algorithms to perform
BLAS/LAPACK operations exploiting fully modern architectures.
Chameleon dense linear algebra software relies on sequential
task-based algorithms where sub-tasks of the overall algorithms are
submitted to a Runtime system. Such a system is a layer between the
application and the hardware which handles the scheduling and the
effective execution of tasks on the processing units. A Runtime system
such as [StarPU](http://starpu.gforge.inria.fr/) is able to manage
automatically data transfers between not shared memory area
(CPUs-GPUs, distributed nodes).
This kind of implementation paradigm allows to design high performing
linear algebra algorithms on very different type of architecture:
laptop, many-core nodes, CPUs-GPUs, multiple nodes. For example,
Chameleon is able to perform a Cholesky factorization
(double-precision) at 80 TFlop/s on a dense matrix of order 400 000
(i.e. 4 min). Chameleon is a sub-project of
[MORSE](http://icl.cs.utk.edu/morse/) specifically dedicated to dense
linear algebra.
Get Chameleon
---------------------
To use last development states of Chameleon, please clone the master
branch hosted here, /i.e./:
git clone git@gitlab.inria.fr:solverstack/chameleon.git
Last releases of Chameleon are hosted on the
[gforge.inria.fr](https://gforge.inria.fr/frs/?group_id=2884) for now.
Future releases will be available on this gitlab project.
Documentation
---------------------
There is no up-to-date documentation of Chameleon. We would like to
provide a doxygen documentation hosted on
[gitlab](https://about.gitlab.com/2016/04/07/gitlab-pages-setup/) in
the future.
The documentation of Chameleon's last release is available here:
[chameleon-0.9.1
documentation](http://morse.gforge.inria.fr/chameleon/0.9.1/chameleon_users_guide-0.9.1.html)
Installation
---------------------
### Build and install with CMake
Chameleon can be built using [CMake](https://cmake.org/). This
installation requires to have some library dependencies already
installed on the system.
Please refer to the
[chameleon-0.9.1](http://morse.gforge.inria.fr/chameleon/0.9.1/chameleon_users_guide-0.9.1.html#Installing-CHAMELEON)
to get configuration information.
### Distribution of Chameleon
To get support to install a full distribution (Chameleon +
dependencies) we encourage users to use the morse branch of
*Spack*.
Please read these documentations:
* [Spack Morse](http://morse.gforge.inria.fr/spack/spack.html).
* [Section Chameleon](http://morse.gforge.inria.fr/spack/spack.html#sec-2-1).
