[M-1] LAPACK -- The LAPACK linear-algebra routines

Description

LAPACK stands for Linear Algebra PACKage and is a freely available set of FORTRAN 90 routines for solving systems of simultaneous equations, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems. Many of the LAPACK routines are based on older EISPACK and LINPACK routines, and the more modern LAPACK does much of its computation by using BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprogram).

Remarks

The LAPACK and BLAS routines form the basis for many of Mata's linear-algebra capabilities. Individual functions of Mata that use LAPACK routines always make note of that fact.

For up-to-date information on LAPACK, see http://www.netlib.org/lapack/.

Advanced programmers can directly access the LAPACK functions; see [M-5] lapack().
