### About

LAPACK is a free package of linear algebra subroutines written in Fortran that can be used to solve:

- Systems of Linear equations
- Linear least squares problems
- Eigenvalue problems
- Singular value problems
- Associated Computations
- Matrix factorizations (LU, Cholesky, QR, SVD, Schur, generalized Schur)
- Reordering of the Schur factorizations
- Estimating condition numbers
- And much more . . .

LAPACK can be used for the following types of matrices:

- Dense and band (not general sparse matrices)
- Real and complex
- Single and double precision

###### ▶ **FIX-ME** FAQ?

### Usage

LAPACK is a binary library, so it is linked to your program by the
compiler during the build process by adding the `-llapack`

flag to the link line:

#### Fortran

$ ifort sample.f -llapack

### Build and Execute

$ ifort lapack_test.f90 -llapack $ ./a.out -0.667 -1.333 -0.667 3.667 1.000 -2.000

#### C

The LAPACK routines must be declared with `extern`

,
the routine name must be in lowercase, and it must be followed by
an **_** (i.e. underscore):

extern void dgetrf_(int*, int*, double*, int*, int*, int*);

Be sure when calling the LAPACK routing that all arguments
are *passed by reference*.

**Note:** *Since C matrices are stored in row major order,
and Fortran matrices are stored in column major order, a transpose
is necessary to go from C to Fortran order, and the result transposed
again from Fortran to C order. It is more efficient to change the
array indexing to take this into account. *

#### Build and Execute

#### C++

The LAPACK routines must be declared with ```
extern
"C"
```

, the routine name must be in lowercase, and it must
be followed by an **_** (i.e. underscore):

extern "C" void dgetrf_(int*, int*, double*, int*, int*, int*);

Be sure when calling the LAPACK routing that all arguments
are *passed by reference*.

**Note:** *Since C++ matrices are stored in row major order,
and Fortran matrices are stored in column major order, a transpose
is necessary to go from C to Fortran order, and the result transposed
again from Fortran to C order. It is more efficient to change the
array indexing to take this into account.*
