How to get Cholesky diagonal?

Hello

I need to extract diagonal from cholesky LDLt sparse factorization. Can I do this with Intel MKL?

I can use pardiso to factor and solve sparse linear system. But cholesky factor matrix itself is unreachable for me.

Thanks

Hello Vladimir,

Are you looking for something like pardiso_getdiag? https://software.intel.com/en-us/mkl-developer-reference-c-pardiso-getdiag

Or do you need factor L?

Best,
Kirill

Thank you so much. I somehow did not see it

One more question.

Documentation for pardiso_getdiag says that "it is possible that array df is not in line with the perm array computed during phase 11".

How can I get correct permutations of diagonal elements of the factorized matrix after factorization?

Hello again,

The reason for the note is the internal pivoting which is essential for the stability of the algorithm, especially for non-symmetric matrices. I believe if you turn the pivoting off (iparm[20] = 0, https://software.intel.com/en-us/mkl-developer-reference-c-pardiso-iparm-parameter) you should get the correct diagonal values (which agree with the perm returned after phase 11).

If this is not an option for you, we could add it as a feature request in our to-do list. Or, if you tell us what goal you want to achieve by using the diagonal, we might possibly suggest an alternative option.

Best,
Kirill
