Paper Abstract

Many applications of the eigenvalue decomposition of dense matrices are well known. This work was prompted by research in the numerical simulation of disordered electronic systems, in which one of the most common approaches is to diagonalize random Hamiltonian matrices in order to study the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of a single electron in the presence of a random potential. In this paper, we describe an effort to implement a matrix diagonalization routine for real symmetric dense matrices on massively parallel SIMD computers, the Maspar MP-1 and MP-2 systems. Results of numerical tests and timings are also presented.
