3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

SLATEC4.1 is a large collection of FORTRAN mathematical subprograms brought together in a joint effort by the Air Force Phillips Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Magnetic Fusion Energy Computing Center, National Institute of Standards and  Technology, Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque and Livermore), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. SLATEC is characterized by portability, good numerical technology, good documentation, robustness, and quality assurance. The library can be divided into the following subsections following the lines of the  GAMS classification system: Error Analysis, Elementary and Special Functions, Elementary Vector Operations, Solutions of Systems of Linear Equations, Eigenanalysis, QR Decomposition, Singular Value Decomposition, Overdetermined or Underdetermined Systems, Interpolation, Solution of Nonlinear Equations, Optimization, Quadrature, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Fast Fourier Transforms, Approximation, Pseudo-random Number Generation, Sorting, Machine Constants, and Diagnostics and Error Handling.
