2-D block-cyclic distribution scheme for codistributed array


A codistributor2dbc object defines the 2-D block-cyclic distribution scheme for a codistributed array. The 2-D block-cyclic codistributor can only distribute two-dimensional matrices. It distributes matrices along two subscripts over a rectangular computational grid of labs in a blocked, cyclic manner. The parallel matrix computation software library called ScaLAPACK uses the 2-D block-cyclic codistributor.
