%X We present a set of new batched CUDA kernels for the LU factorization of a large collection of independent problems of different size, and the subsequent triangular solves. All kernels heavily exploit the registers of the graphics processing unit (GPU) in order to deliver high performance for small problems. The development of these kernels is motivated by the need for tackling this embarrassingly parallel scenario in the context of block-Jacobi preconditioning that is relevant for the iterative solution of sparse linear systems.
