[Trilinos-Users] Best direct solvers

If I understand correctly, you have lots of tridiagonal systems
corresponding to the x direction that can all be solved independently.
In this case, I would suggest to remap your data (Epetra import/export)
such that you can use a serial direct solver (KLU) on each tridiagonal
system. You could perhaps view this as a domain decomposition approach
and use Ifpack with Amesos/KLU as the subdomain solver.
An alternative is to form one huge global (distributed) matrix and call
Amesos with a 3rd party solver (SuperLU, MUMPS, etc.) but I think that
would be less efficient.
