Comparison of the Sparse Matrix Storage Formats
Author: Ivan Šimeček

performance; sparse matrix storage


Computations with sparse matrices are widespread in scientific projects. The performance of mathematical operations with sparse matrices depends strongly on the used matrix storage format. In this paper, we compare the performance during the execution of some basic routines from linear solvers and its dependency on the used format. The paper consists of four parts: a general introduction of sparse matrix storage formats, performance testing, conclusions, and suggestions for future work.
