LINPACK and Its Impact on High Performance Computing

*(Sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing)*

The intent of this minisymposium is to give some historical perspective on the impact LINPACK had on the development of high-performance computing. Fifteen years ago, at the 30th SIAM Annual Meeting, also at Stanford, SIAM introduced the concept of "minisymposia" at its conferences. One of the first such minisymposia featured a discussion of the performance of linear algebra algorithms on early vector computers such as the Cray-1S. Many of the key developments of the last 15 years in high-performance computing can be traced back directly to this minisymposium: the development of fast linear algebra algorithms for high-performance computing architectures; the use of LINPACK as a benchmark for new computer architectures; the development of high-quality mathematical software, which tracked the architectural evolution of high-performance architectures (BLAS2 and BLAS3, LAPACK, SCALAPACK). In the current minisymposium we will provide a perspective on these developments, and present survey talks on the current state of the art in these areas.
