Problems that LAPACK95 can Solve

LAPACK95 provides interfaces to all LAPACK driver and computational routines. Driver routines are for the major tasks of solving systems of linear equations, linear least squares problems, eigenvalue problems and singular value problems. For details see Chapter 2 and Part II. Computational routines are for smaller computational tasks; each driver typically calls a sequence of computational routines. The computational routines are documented briefly in Part III.
As with LAPACK, dense and band matrices are provided for but not general sparse matrices. In all areas, similar functionality is provided for real and complex matrices and single and double precision.
