Block decompositions of matrices as you've described in your question are a perfectly valid way of distributing a matrix, but it is not the only way to do it. In particular, block data distributions (breaking up the matrix into procrows x process sub-matrices) is a little inflexible. If the matrix...

Scalapack library uses naming conversion to declare single or double precision function. This declaration is done by the second letter of scalapack function The "PD*" function means a double precision function, while "PS*" means single. So, you should change DBLESZ = 8 to DBLESZ = 4 All DOUBLE PRECISION to...

The issue may come from : MPI_Bcast(&lda, 1, MPI_INT, 0, MPI_COMM_WORLD); Before this line, lda is different on each process if the dimension of the matrix is odd. Two processes handle 2 rows and two processes handle 3 rows. But after the MPI_Bcast(), lda is the same everywhere (3). The...
