Parallel Linear Algebra Software for Multi-core Architectures (PLASMA) is a free and open-source software library for numerical solution of linear equation systems on shared memory computers with multi-core processors. In particular, PLASMA is designed to give high efficiency on homogeneous multi-core processors and multi-socket systems of multi-core processors. As of today, majority of such systems are on-chip symmetric multiprocessors with classic super-scalar processors as their building blocks augmented with short-vector SIMD extensions (such as SSE and AltiVec). PLASMA is available for download from the PLASMA Web site (To obtain the PLASMA library logon to: http://icl.cs.utk.edu/plasma/).
