new to magma

Post by yariveis » Tue Jan 10, 2012 6:42 am


I looked over the site and could find only a user manual for magma version 0.2
Do you have one updated for version 1.1.0?

And one specific issue,
While reading your PDF I see that magma has a solver Xgeev series, that solves the non-symmetric eigenvalue problem.
Does there exist a solver for the general symmetric problem which can exploit the symmetric assumption?

Most of the MAGMA routines are self-documented, which you can read in the files section of the doxygen documentation at or in the source code itself.
We don't yet have an updated manual.

As for eigenvalues, there are syevd and heevd routines for the symmetric/Hermitian cases. Also sygvd and hegvd routines for the generalized symmetric/Hermitian cases.

The news release at lists all of MAGMA's capabilities and the corresponding functions.
