Changed behavior in Pardiso, MKL 11.3.3 vs MKL 11.1.3

Hi,

I recently upgraded from Compser XE 2013SP1U3 to Composer XE 2016U3, and thus from MKL 11.1.3 to MKL 11.3.3. This has caused a slightly changed behavior in the output from Pardiso in the following situations:

  1. When trying to "solve" a system of equations of dimension 0 (I have a set of unit tests which for one test degenerates to this case).
    1. 11.1.3: the error code is 0 (no error), so that the solution may be interpreted as the empty vector.
    2. 11.3.3: the error code is -1, indicating "inconsistent input."
  2. When trying to solve a system Ax=b in which A is an 5x5 matrix of all zeros, and b is a 5x1 matrix of all zeros. 
    1. 11.1.3: the error code is -7
    2. 11.3.3: the error code is -4

Are these changes expected?

Of course, both cases are degenerate and not of any practical interest. I just need to confirm that this changed behavior does not suggest any errors in my (other) input to Pardiso.

Thanks!

Jens

Hi Jens,

You are correct, we implement input parameters check and removed diagonal matrices branch so mentioned behaviour expected

Thanks,

Alex
