Htool – Parallelised hierarchical matrices
Htool is a lightweight header-only C++11 library that provides an easy-to-use interface for parallel matrix compression via hierarchical matrices. Its goal is to provide minimal linear algebra and linear solvers for such matrices.
It also offers a modular framework where one can modify, or add other alternatives, for each part of the compression algorithm (low-rank approximation, clustering and admissibility condition). Via its interface with HPDDM, it is also a flexible tool to test various iterative solvers and preconditioners.
The project is hosted on GitHub, under the permissive MIT license.
