SuperLU 6.0.1

SuperLU is a general purpose library for the direct solution of large, sparse, nonsymmetric systems of linear equations on high performance machines. The library is written in C and is callable from either C or Fortran. The library routines perform an LU decomposition with partial pivoting and triangular system solves through forward and back substitution. The library also provides thresholdbased ILU factorization preconditioners.
The factorization routines can handle nonsquare matrices but the triangular solves are performed only for square matrices. The matrix columns may be preordered (before factorization) either through library or user supplied routines. This preordering for sparsity is completely separate from the factorization. Working precision iterative refinement subroutines are provided for improved backward stability. Routines are also provided to equilibrate the system, estimate the condition number, calculate the relative backward error, and estimate error bounds for the refined solutions.
You are reading the SuperLU API documentation. It is automatically generated by Doxygen from special comments in the source code. This type of documentation helps you to look up functions, their arguments, and what they mean. This is no introduction, howto or similar document for beginners.
You can start from the page Modules which gives you access to the documentation by category.
