I am trying to multiply two matrices using mkl_ddiamm method:

C = A * B

where A is diagonal matrix 3x3 and B is general matrix 3x3. No matter what I try, i get as a result no A*B, but B*A. This is my sample code. It essentially does SVD decomposition of matrix A and checks, if the computed matrices U, S and VT satisfy all requirements according to theory i.e.

1. U * UT = I, where I us identity matrix

2. V * VT = I

3. U * S * VT = A

Result of temporary operation S * VT is not correct. In fact, the function mkl_ddiamm computes VT * S.

// requirement: m >= n int m = 3; int n = 3; double *a = (double *)mkl_malloc(m * n * sizeof(double), 16); double *s = (double *)mkl_malloc(n * sizeof(double), 16); double *u = (double *)mkl_malloc(m * n * sizeof(double), 16); double *vt = (double *)mkl_malloc(n * n * sizeof(double), 16); double *superb = (double *)mkl_malloc((n-1) * sizeof(double), 16); // identity matrix m x m double *unit_m = (double *)mkl_malloc(m * m * sizeof(double), 16); for (int i = 0; i < m; i++) for (int j = 0; j < m; j++) unit_m[i*m+j] = i == j ? 1.0 : 0; // identity matrix n x n double *unit_n = (double *)mkl_malloc(n * n * sizeof(double), 16); for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) for (int j = 0; j < n; j++) unit_n[i*n+j] = i == j ? 1.0 : 0; a[0] = 1; a[1] = 1; a[2] = 1; a[3] = 2.5; a[4] = 3; a[5] = 4; a[6] = 3; a[7] = 2; a[8] = 1; lapack_int res = LAPACKE_dgesvd(LAPACK_ROW_MAJOR, 'S', 'S', m, n, a, n, s, u, n, vt, n, superb); // Checking correctness of SVD calculation ... // u * ut = I double *temp = (double *)mkl_malloc(m * m * sizeof(double), 16); memset(temp, 0, m * m * sizeof(double)); cblas_dgemm(CblasRowMajor, CblasNoTrans, CblasTrans, m, m, n, 1.0, u, n, u, n, 0, temp, m); // v * vt = I memset(temp, 0, n * n * sizeof(double)); cblas_dgemm(CblasRowMajor, CblasTrans, CblasNoTrans, n, n, n, 1.0, vt, n, vt, n, 0, temp, n); // u * s * vt = a memset(temp, 0, n * n * sizeof(double)); int lval = 3; int idiag = 0; int ndiag = 1; double alpha = 1.0; double beta = 0; mkl_ddiamm("N", &n, &n, &n, &alpha, "DLNF", s, &lval, &idiag, &ndiag, vt, &n, &beta, temp, &n); double *temp2 = (double *)mkl_malloc(m * n * sizeof(double), 16); memset(temp2, 0, m * n * sizeof(double)); cblas_dgemm(CblasRowMajor, CblasNoTrans, CblasNoTrans, m, n, n, 1.0, u, n, temp, n, 0, temp2, n);

Hi Jan,

It is by designed purpose as MKL support both foran interface and C interface. So for these SPARSE BLAS functions,

mkl_sdiamm

NOTE

This routine supports only one-based indexing of the input arrays.

when A*B, if A is claimed in 1 based, then MKL supports only take column-oriented dense matrix B in 1-base case also. So the routine take B as column-oriented, as a result, it looks VT * S.

So maybe you can use the cblas function (c interface) to replace the functionality.

cblas_?trmm

Computes a matrix-matrix product where one input

matrix is triangular.

Syntax

void cblas_strmm (const CBLAS_LAYOUT Layout, const CBLAS_SIDE side, const CBLAS_UPLO

uplo, const CBLAS_TRANSPOSE transa, const CBLAS_DIAG diag, const MKL_INT m, const

MKL_INT n, const float alpha, const float *a, const MKL_INT lda, float *b, const

MKL_INT ldb);

Best Regards,

Ying

Hello Ying,

now I understand but only partially. So if routine mkl_ddiamm takes matrix B as column oriented, it explains why it seems as if order of multiplication was changed. If my matrix B was saved in column major order, all would be as in documentation. But what has column major order in common with one-based indexing ? Arent these different things ? I am lost in this. I noticed that note about "one-based indexing" in documentation, but didnt understand. There is not any parameter of mkl_ddiamm method like "index of array item" where this note would be appropriate. Perhaps its clear for you, but I am only beginning working with MKL, so forgive my silly questions.

I will use mkl_ddiamm method it seems to me more effective than cblas_?trmm for my case. Instead of multiplicating formula u * s * vt from right u * (s * vt), I will do it from left (u * s) * vt. There should be a little bit more multiplications involved, but the difference isnt significant.

Hi Jan,

Right, it brings some confusion here. The "one-based indexing" is not apply to the routine, but for all SP BLAS functions. We should add some notes there to clarify. Thanks for asking.

Please notes,

this routine supports only one-based indexing of the input arrays, thus the B and C ( if suitable) were column-oriented.

if considering the matrix structure, the mkl_ddiamm should be almost same effect as cblas_?trmm, But you may caculate the result either from right or left. For example. (u * s) * vt , where (u*s)t=s*ut. here two column-oriented make a row major, so the result should be ok.

Best Regards,

Ying
