High Performance Linear Algebra Package - LAPACK90

Part of the Combinatorial Optimization book series (COOP, volume 5)


LAPACK90 is a set of FORTRAN90 subroutines which interfaces FORTRANOO with LAPACK.

All LAPACK driver subroutines (including expert drivers) and some LAPACK computationals have both generic LAPACK90 interfaces and generic LAPACK77 interfaces. The remaining computationals have only generic LAPACK77 interfaces. In both types of interfaces no distinction is made between single and double precision or between real and complex data types.
