ABSTRACT
<p>A fast parallel algorithm, which is generalized from the parallel algorithms for solving banded linear systems, is proposed to solve sparse triangular systems. The original problem is transformed into a directed graph. The solving procedure then consists of eliminating edges in this graph. The worst-case time-complexity of this parallel algorithm is O(log/sup 2/n) where n is the size of the coefficient matrix. When the coefficient matrix is a triangular banded matrix with bandwidth m, then the time-complexity of the algorithm is O(log(m)*log(n)).</p>
