Future linear-algebra libraries

J. Dongarra
1996 IEEE Computational Science & Engineering  
Both the PVM (parallel virtual machine) and the MPI (message-passing interface) have helped establish standards and promote portable software, critical for software library work.  ...  Scalable library development cannot wait, however, until all the enabling technologes are in place for two reasons: The need for such libraries for existing and near-term parallel architectures is immediate  ...  This common environment has made possible the extensive catalogs of reusable components in Netlib, Numerical Recipes, NAG, IMSL, and so on.  ...
