LAPACK 3.6.1

LAPACK is written in Fortran 90 and provides routines for solving systems of simultaneous linear equations, least-squares solutions of linear systems of equations, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems. The associated matrix factorizations (LU, Cholesky, QR, SVD, Schur, generalized Schur) are also provided, as are related computations such as reordering of the Schur factorizations and estimating condition numbers. Dense and banded matrices are handled, but not general sparse matrices. In all areas, similar functionality is provided for real and complex matrices, in both single and double precision.

Accessing the software

There are 3 modules for this version of LAPACK. One with FOSS, one with Intel, and one with IOMKL. Load the one relevant for your needs:

$ module load apps/lapack/3.6.1-foss-2016.10
$ module load apps/lapack/3.6.1-intel-2017.01
$ module load apps/lapack/3.6.1-iomkl-2017.01

LAPACK comes as a library and should be linked against by including an option similar to the following when compiling:


Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
