This week's colloquium: "An introduction to MPLAPACK, a multi-precision linear algebra library" by Ge Baolai from SHARCNET.
The Compute Ontario Colloquia are weekly Zoom presentations on Advanced Research Computing, High Performance Computing, Research Data Management, and Research Software topics, delivered by staff from three Compute Ontario consortia (CAC, SciNet, SHARCNET) and guest speakers. The colloquia are one hour long and include time for questions. No registration is required. Most presentations are recorded and uploaded to the hosting consortium video channel.
MPLAPACK is a complete multiple-precision implementation of LAPACK – the linear algebra package for solving systems of simultaneous linear equations, least-squares solutions of linear systems of equations, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems. LAPACK was written with a fixed specific precision for various routines. MPLAPACK is a rewrite of LAPACK routines supporting multiple precision. This talk introduces MPLAPACK and describes how to use it under Linux and Windows.
