OpenMP and poiters to member function

Postby stkubr » Tue Jan 24, 2012 9:20 am

Hi, i have a paralleled class with a integrand function and multidimensional integration routine:

Code: Select all
class NiceClass

    double P;
    double (NiceClass::*nrfunc)(double,double,double);

void NiceClass(void){P=0;} //constructor

// Integrator (sure it`s only blank construction)
double qgaus5(double (NiceClass::*func) (double), double a, double b)
   double x;
   return (this->*func)(x);

// Multidimensional integration routine
double Multi_int_3d(double (NiceClass::*func)(double, double, double), double x1, double x2)
return qgaus5(&NiceClass::f1,x1,x2);

double f1(double k)
return qgaus5(&NiceClass::f2,-1,1);

double f2(double z)
return qgaus5(&NiceClass::f3,-1,1);

double f3(double y)
return (this->*nrfunc)(ksav,zsav,y);
// End of multidimensional integration routine

double Integrand(double x, double y, double z )
   return P*x*y*z;

void calc_int(double a)

//here is paralleled section
void get_result()
   double res[3];

#pragma omp parallel num_threads(2)
   #pragma omp for
   for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
      res[i]=calc_int( i );

}//end pragma   


  NiceClass int;

The problem is all threads become entangled and it all become messy and the result is wrong.
How to make it right?

The problem is that all threads are trying to use the same P.
One way to fix this would be to create a new instance of NiceClass for each iteration of the parallel loop.
