eispack
eispack,
a C code which
calculates the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix.
Despite the following documentation, please note that only a FEW
of the EISPACK routines have actually been
converted to C at this time.
A variety of options are available for special matrix formats.
Note that EISPACK "simulates" complex arithmetic. That is,
complex data is stored as pairs of real numbers, and complex
arithmetic is done by carefully manipulating the real numbers.
EISPACK is old, and its functionality has been replaced by
the more modern and efficient LAPACK. There are some advantages,
not all sentimental, to keeping a copy of EISPACK around. For
one thing, the implementation of the LAPACK routines makes it
a trying task to try to comprehend the algorithm by reading the
source code. A single user level routine may refer indirectly to
thirty or forty others.
EISPACK includes a function to compute the singular value decomposition (SVD)
of a rectangular matrix.
The pristine correct original source code is available
through
the NETLIB web site.
