LAPACK is a library of Fortran subroutines for solving the most commonly occurring problems in numerical linear algebra.

LAPACK is a freely-available software package. It can be included in commercial software packages (and has been). We only ask that that proper credit be given to the authors, for example by citing the LAPACK Users' Guide. The license used for the software is the modified BSD license, see:

Like all software, it is copyrighted. It is not trademarked, but we do ask the following: if you modify the source for these routines we ask that you change the name of the routine and comment the changes made to the original.

We will gladly answer any questions regarding the software. If a modification is done, however, it is the responsibility of the person who modified the routine to provide support.

LAPACK is available from github at:

LAPACK releases are also available on netlib at:

The distribution contains (1) the Fortran source for LAPACK, and (2) its testing programs. It also contains (3) the Fortran reference implementation of the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (the Level 1, 2, and 3 BLAS) needed by LAPACK. However this code is intended for use only if there is no other implementation of the BLAS already available on your machine; the efficiency of LAPACK depends very much on the efficiency of the BLAS. It also contains (4) CBLAS, a C interface to the BLAS, and (5) LAPACKE, a C interface to LAPACK.


  • LAPACK can be installed with make. The configuration have to be set in the file. A for a Linux machine running GNU compilers is given in the main directory. Some specific are also available in the INSTALL directory.
  • LAPACK includes also the CMake build. You will need to have CMake installed on your machine (CMake is available at CMake will allow an easy installation on a Windows Machine.
  • Specific information to run LAPACK under Windows is available at

User Support

LAPACK has been thoroughly tested, on many different types of computers. The LAPACK project supports the package in the sense that reports of errors or poor performance will gain immediate attention from the developers. Such reports, descriptions of interesting applications, and other comments should be sent by electronic mail to
