NAG Library for SMP and Multicore

Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) has released a new NAG Library for SMP and Multicore, which will help scientists to make better use of the processing power of multicore computer systems.

Mathematical and statistical algorithms optimised for performance on multicore architectures have become key to progress in various aspects of computationally-intensive problem solving in the full gamut of scientific fields.

The NAG Library for SMP and Multicore contains more than 1,600 routines, including more than 100 new for this release.
