General Help

LAPACK is a library of Fortran 77 routines for solving the most commonly occurring problems in linear algebra. It has been designed to be efficient on a wide body of modern high-performance computers. The name LAPACK is an acronym for Linear Algebra PACKage.

LAPACK includes driver routines for solving standard types of problems, computational routines for performing distinct computational tasks, and auxiliary routines for performing certain subtasks or low-level computations.

This site provides the capability of automated retrieval of LAPACK routines and information about LAPACK. Use the buttons on the left or above to begin your search through the LAPACK collection.

Users not familiar with LAPACK will find it helpful to review the LAPACK User's Guide before using this site.
