Obtaining and Installing KDT


KDT is open-source under the BSD License and is available on our Download page.

While KDT is a Python module, it is backed by a high performance C++/MPI backend and thus must be compiled. Like most Python modules, we've provided a script which installs the KDT module, but some additional requirements exist. Please see the Installation page for instructions as well as examples of what was actually required to install KDT on particular machines.

Using KDT

  • Tutorials to illustrate KDT's ease-of-use, flexibility, and features.
  • If you'd like to use KDT on your own data, you may find the File Format Guide useful.

Combinatorial BLAS

KDT's high-performance backend is the Combinatorial BLAS, which is a separate project. The Combinatorial BLAS is included in KDT and does NOT need to be installed separately.
