SLEPc – a library for Eigenvalue problems

SLEPc stands for Scalable Library for Eigenvalue Problem Computations. With this library, it is possible to solve Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors. These problems are infamous in quantum mechanics. Before we go a little into details, we will download, configure, and compile the SLEPc extension library.

Downloading and configuring SLEPc

Download Version 3.4.4 from http://www.grycap.upv.es/slepc/download/download.htm.

Note

SLEPc and PETSc must match in their main and first subversions. So, 3.4.4 and 3.4.1 are fine, and 3.5 and 3.1 will probably not work.

To install SLEPc, extract the archive with the following command:

tar –xf petsc-3.4.4.tar.gz

Go to the petsc-3.4.4 subdirectory and type the following:

export PETSC_DIR=/var/mpishare/petsc-3.4.1 ...
