[M1] LAPACK  The LAPACK linearalgebra 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
linearalgebra capabilities. Individual functions of Mata that use
LAPACK routines always make note of that fact.
For uptodate information on LAPACK, see http://www.netlib.org/lapack/.
Advanced programmers can directly access the LAPACK functions; see [M5]
lapack().
