The package includes the following libraries: + + AMD approximate minimum degree ordering + BTF permutation to block triangular form (beta) + CAMD constrained approximate minimum degree ordering + COLAMD column approximate minimum degree ordering + CCOLAMD constrained column approximate minimum degree ordering + CHOLMOD sparse Cholesky factorization + CXSparse CSparse extended: complex matrix, int and long int support + KLU sparse LU factorization, primarily for circuit simulation + LDL a simple LDL' factorization + SQPR a multithread, multifrontal, rank-revealing sparse QR + factorization method + UMFPACK sparse LU factorization + UFconfig configuration file for all the above packages. + +This requires blas and lapack. + +suitesparse is an optional dependency for the octave package. + +NOTES: + +* CHOLMOD can also be compiled to use the METIS library, but it is not + used here because its licensing terms exclude it from Octave. + +* CXSparse is a superset of CSparse, and the two share common header + names, so it does not make sense to build both. CXSparse is built + by default. + +* SlackBuilds.org also has all the parts of this suite as individual + builds DO NOT try and install the individual parts and the suite pick + one or the other. |
