Abstract
MATH LIBRARIES ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENTS THAT SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF APPLICATION SOFTWARE. WHILE BROADLY AVAILABLE ON SEQUENTIAL COMPUTERS, MATH LIBRARIES ARE RARE FOR PARALLEL COMPUTERS-ESPECIALLY IN THE CASE OF DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING ACROSS NETWORKS OF WORKSTATIONS. PLANS TO CONDUCT RESEARCH LEADING TO A PORTABLE VERSION OF THE LAPACK LIBRARY FOR NETWORK DISTRIBUTED COMPUTERS ARE DESCRIBED. LAPACK WAS SELECTED SINCE IT IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT MATH LIBRARY IN USE TODAY. THE KEY RESEARCH ISSUES ARE TO FIND DATA DECOMPOSITIONS AND ALGORITHMS THAT SUPPORT EFFICIENT EXECUTION WITH THE COARSE GRANULARITIES FOUND ON NETWORKS OF WORKSTATIONS.
