NAG Library Chapter Introduction

f06 – Linear Algebra Support Functions


Scope of the Chapter

This chapter is concerned with basic linear algebra functions which perform elementary algebraic operations involving scalars, vectors and matrices. It includes functions which conform to the specifications of the BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms).
A large number of functions in this chapter have been superseded by equivalent functions in Chapter f16. Please refer to Section 4 for further information.
