Scalable LAPACK


The Linear Algebra PACKage (LAPACK) and Scalable LAPACK (ScaLAPACK) are widely used libraries for solving dense linear algebra problems. ICL has contributed to the development and maintenance of these two packages. LAPACK is single node and relies on a multi-core BLAS library for parallelism. ScaLAPACK is parallel, distributed, and depends on the BLAS, LAPACK, MPI, and BLACS libraries.

The latest major release of LAPACK, version 3.12.0, was released in November 2023. This version added a number of improvements along with bug fixes. Highlights include the dynamic mode decomposition (DMD), truncated QR with column pivoting, reciprocal vector scaling, improvements in the 64-bit API, and revised online documentation structure.
