## Where can I find LAPACK library?

Locate BLAS Library The first step is to determine where is the BLAS library on your system. Use the command “locate libblas.so” to find the library. If several results are reported, look for the version under /usr/lib/ or /usr/lib64 or something similar to that path.

**What is Blas and Lapack?**

BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprogram and LAPACK (Linear Algebra PACK) are two of the most commonly used libraries in advanced research computing. They are used for vector and matrix operations that are commonly found in a plethora of algorithms.

### Where is LAPACK on Mac?

### What is Blas and LAPACK?

**What Blas does Matlab use?**

Until now, MATLAB has used carefully coded C and assembly language versions of these Level 1 BLAS. LAPACK’s block algorithms also make use of Level 2 and Level 3 BLAS, which operate on larger portions of entire matrices.

## How do you call Lapack?

To call LAPACK or BLAS functions:

- Create a source MEX file containing the mexFunction gateway routine.
- Make sure that you have a supported compiler for your platform.
- Build a binary MEX file using the mex command and the separate complex build flag -R2017b .

## What is Lapack Python?

LAPACK is a library of linear algebra routines that go beyond basic operations. These include routines for various factorizations and eigenvalue and singular value decompositions.
