The Jacobi Iteration for Linear Systems

JACOBI is a C++ library which sets up the Jacobi iteration for linear systems.

The program uses the GNUPLOT_I interface program to create plots of the residual and the "motion" of the solution over the iteration.

JACOBI is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
