Solving linear systems is an important problem for scientific computing. Exploiting parallelism is essential for solving complex systems. and this traditionally involves writing parallel algorithms on top of a library such as MPI. The SPIKE family of algorithms is one well-known example of a parallel solver for linear systems.
