Common Open Source Math-Scientific Libraries

This category defines a set of open source math and scientific libraries, each having the same version and configuration across all participating centers. The suite of maintained packages consists of the following:

  • ARPACK: Solution of Eigenvalues/Eigenvectors
  • FFTW: Library for computing Discrete Fourier Transforms
    • Both MPI and non-MPI versions are maintained
  • PETSc: Suite of scientific computing routines
  • SuperLU: Direct solution of sparse linear systems of equations
  • LAPACK: Software library of numerical linear algebra routines
  • ScaLAPACK: Subset of parallelized LAPACK routines
  • GSL: C/C++ library with a wide variety of mathematical routines

All math and scientific libraries listed in this category, as well as three other categories referenced in BC Policy FY13-01 (Common Open Source Software Base), are incorporated in the HPCMP Common Open Source Tools (COST) package.

All information on how to access any of the supported libraries is provided in BC Common Capability "Open Source Math-Scientific Libraries."
