(GBSOL) - Gauss Elimination of Large Banded Matrices Using Disk Storage

TOMS664 is a FORTRAN77 library which uses Gauss elimination to solve linear systems involving large banded matrices. Disk storage is used when there is not enough memory for the working data.


TOMS664 is available in a FORTRAN77 version.
