improve performance of inplace_solve

Reported by: Gunter Owned by: Gunter
Milestone: Boost 1.52.0 Component: uBLAS
Version: Boost 1.42.0 Severity: Optimization
Keywords: performance, triangular solve, inplace solve Cc: consulting@…


Joern Ungermann proposed a patch to improve performance of inplace_solve.

The inplace_solve routine has to cope for 24 different cases:

a) row_major / column_major

b) upper / lower

c) dense / packed / sparse

d) A * x = b / x * A = b

The case row_major / lower_tag / A * x = b is currently mapped to row_major / upper_tag / x * A = b and the case row_major / upper_tag / A * x = b is currently mapped to row_major / lower_tag / x * A = b This is very inefficient for compressed_matrix types! The cases column_major / [lower_tag | upper_tag] / x * A = b are seemingly handled, but I can't get it to complile. The cases of row_major / [lower_tag | upper_tag] / x * A = b *do* have an efficient implementation, which is *not* used to a programming bug, i.e. making the choice of the function depending on the storage type of the vector and not on the matrix.

I rewrote triangular.hpp to

a) handle *all* cases of A * x = b and to

b) "redirect" the x * A = b cases to the aforementioned ones.

This keeps the code about the same size as it currently is. It costs some efficiently for the redirected cases, but previously certain cases were also redirected (just different ones). It is trivial to add the missing cases, but adds quite a bit of code.

Test case for inplace solve.

comment:1 Changed 8 years ago by j.ungermann@…

Hello, I uploaded a testcase for inplace_solve. It doesn't compile with the current trunk (as it is buggy), but with my patched version. It uses the macros defined in utils.hpp. Compilation time is quite high, execution time is quite fast. It tests all matrix types with both majorities that I am aware of.

I just saw that the line #include <boost/numeric/ublas/> should be #include <boost/numeric/ublas/triangular.hpp> .
