linpack_d
linpack_d,
an Octave code which
solves systems of linear equations for a variety
of matrix types and storage modes,
by Jack Dongarra, Jim Bunch, Cleve Moler, Pete Stewart.
The matrix and vector data is presumed to be real.
MATLAB already provides a wide set of linear equation solvers.
This (partial) set of LINPACK routines is provided just for
testing and comparison.
LINPACK has officially been superseded by the LAPACK library. The LAPACK
library uses more modern algorithms and code structure. However,
the LAPACK library can be extraordinarily complex; what is done
in a single LINPACK routine may correspond to 10 or 20 utility
routines in LAPACK. This is fine if you treat LAPACK as a black
box. But if you wish to learn how the algorithm works, or
to adapt it, or to convert the code to another language, this
is a real drawback. This is one reason I still keep a copy
of LINPACK around.
Versions of LINPACK in various arithmetic precisions are available
through the NETLIB web site.
