Ginkgo  Generated from pipelines/207021245 branch based on develop. Ginkgo version 1.3.0
A numerical linear algebra library targeting many-core architectures
Example programs

Here you can find example programs that demonstrate the usage of Ginkgo. Some examples are built on one another and some are stand-alone and demonstrate a concept of Ginkgo, which can be used in your own code.

You can browse the available example programs

  1. as a graph that shows how example programs build upon each other.
  2. as a list that provides a short synopsis of each program.
  3. or grouped by topic.

By default, all Ginkgo examples are built using CMake.

An example for building the examples and using Ginkgo as an external library without CMake can be found in the script provided for each example, which should be called with the form: ./ PATH_TO_GINKGO_BUILD_DIR

By default, Ginkgo is compiled with at least -DGINKGO_BUILD_REFERENCE=ON. To execute on a GPU, you need to have a GPU on the system and must have compiled Ginkgo with the -DGINKGO_BUILD_CUDA=ON option.
