What features do the serial libraries have?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

It is not possible to give a complete listing of the library features in this FAQ. For a listing, please consult the documentation, which is available in PDF format, at the NAG documentation website, and in hardcopy at our Princess St. Office in Kingston.

Here we can only give a basic list of the more important features:

  • Complex Arithmetic
  • Roots of polynomials and transcendental equations
  • Series Summation and quadrature
  • Fourier Series and Transforms
  • Ordinary and partial differential equations
  • Numerical Differentiation
  • Interpolation
  • Fitting of curves and sufaces
  • Optimization
  • Linear Algebra: Matrices, Determinants, Eigenvalues, Linear Equation Systems, Least-Squares, Orthogonalization, Sparse systems
  • Statistics: Correlation, Regression, Variance Analysis,Univariate estimations, Nonparametric statistics, Smoothing, Contingency tables, Time series, Uni- and multivariate estimations
  • Random numbers
  • Operations Research
  • Sorting
  • Special Functions
