LAPACK (Linear Algebra PACKage) provides routines for solving systems of simultaneous linear equations, least-squares solutions of linear systems of equations, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems.

Availability and Restrictions

A highly optimized implementation of LAPACK is available on all OSC clusters as part of the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL). We recommend that you use MKL rather than building LAPACK for yourself. MKL is available to all OSC users.

GPU-BLAST is an accelerated version of the popular NCBI-BLAST (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) that uses general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPU). In comparison to the sequential NCBI-BLAST, GPU-BLAST is nearly four times faster, while producing identical results.

Availability & Restrictions

GPU-BLAST is available without restriction to all OSC users.

The following versions of GPU-BLAST are available on OSC systems:

VirtualGL allows OpenGL applications to run with 3D hardware accerlation.

From julialang.org:

"Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for numerical computing. It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. Julia’s Base library, largely written in Julia itself, also integrates mature, best-of-breed open source C and Fortran libraries for linear algebra, random number generation, signal processing, and string processing. In addition, the Julia developer community is contributing a number of external packages through Julia’s built-in package manager at a rapid pace. IJulia, a collaboration between the Jupyter and Julia communities, provides a powerful browser-based graphical notebook interface to Julia."
