Currently available multilevel hypergraph partitioners, such as PaToH [24], Mondriaan [25], and hMETIS [17], use a few heuristics in the coarsening and refinement steps, which require more than linear time, in order to improve the quality of the partitions.
In an actual application, it is possible to perform several runs of the vector partitioner and keep the best solution, because vector partitioning by our methods is cheap and takes much less time than the preceding matrix partitioning.
This situation occurs in particular for small p, but also if the preceding matrix partitioner has been highly successful, which often limits the number of processors that own a column.
We are currently investigating lower-bound based tie-breaking in the matrix partitioner as one means of achieving perfect communication balance.
