Congratulations for a wonderful and very helpful work ....

I would like to know if there is any plan to develop Lapack 
versions using Streaming SIMD Extension (SSE) and if 
Lapack will be ported to run on systems with 
IBM/Sony/Toshiba Cell processors ?

Thank you on behalf of the LAPACK team.

If your BLAS is using the SSE extensions, then your LAPACK
is using the SSE extensions. It should work out of the box.

Yes, there are plans to develop BLAS for the Cell processor.
There are also plans develop more mixed-precision iterative
refinement routines for LAPACK.
