Distributed Matrix Solver
The distributed matrix solver is a distributed memory parallel technique for the HFSS integral equation solver (IE) solver. HFSS-IE uses the method of moments (MoM) technique to solve for sources and currents on the surfaces of conducting and dielectric objects. The distributed matrix solver significantly increases HFSS-IE simulation capacity by using the distributed-memory parallel technique to distribute the matrix solution to a network of processors and RAM. This method combines with multithreading to provide faster solves for each of the individual subdomains.
