Abstract

This document provides a guide and reference manual for a portable numerical library for sparse matrix computations. These Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) provide kernelsfor forming sparse matrix products (of the form C = aAB + bC. where a and b are scalars, B and C are dense matrices, and A is a sparse matrix) and solution of triangular systems withleft and right scaling ( C = aLATRB +bC, where a and b are scalars, L and T are diagonal matrices, T is the conceptual inverse of a triangular sparse system, and B and C are densematrices). Complete function listings for the ANSI C programming language are provided.
