A new efficient distributed parallel direct eigenvalue solver for
symmetric matrices. It contains both an improved one-step ScaLAPACK type solver
(ELPA1) and the two-step solver ELPA2.
ELPA uses the same matrix layout as ScaLAPACK. The actual parallel linear
algebra routines are completely rewritten. ELPA1 implements the same linear
algebra as traditional solutions (reduction to tridiagonal form by Householder
transforms, divide & conquer solution, eigenvector backtransform). In ELPA2,
the reduction to tridiagonal form and the corresponding backtransform are
replaced by a two-step version, giving an additional significant performance
ELPA has demonstrated good scalability for large matrices on up to 294.000
cores of a BlueGene/P system.

2015-05-29 -
- Update to release 2015.05.001
2015-03-18 -
- Updated to maintenance release 2015.02.002
This release was in part caused by problems observed from the OpenSUSE build
server results.
2015-03-03 -
- Update to released version 2015.02.001
Removed 'skip_openmp_for_missing_mpi_thread_support.patch',
was merged upstream
2014-10-22 -
- Incorporate changes by Dmitry Roshchin, enable OpenMP in my home project
This should allow to use the same spec file for OpenMP support within
my home project with an experimental openmpi 1.8 package, while disabling
OpenMP by default otherwise.
2014-10-11 -
- Disable openmp support for openSUSE <= 13.2
2014-10-10 -
- Allow building of the OpenMP version regardless of the openmpi
library version. The user is responsible for selecting an
implementation that supports MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE
