    lapack

    0.1.0 • Public • Published

    node-lapack

    A node.js wrapper for the high-performance LAPACK linear algebra library.

    Prerequisites

    This library require LAPACK to be built and installed as a shared library. In time the entire build process may be unified into this project, but that's some time away.

    In the meantime I've placed some basic LAPACK build instructions at the end of this document.

    Installation

    npm install lapack
    

    Usage

    var lapack = require('lapack');
    
    /*
    LAPACK functions
    */
    
    var result = lapack.sgeqrf([
        [1, 2, 3],
        [3, 4, 5],
        [5, 6, 7]
    ]);
    
    console.log(result.R);
    console.log(result.tau);
    
    result = sgesvd('A', 'A', [
        [1, 2, 3],
        [3, 4, 5],
        [5, 6, 7]
    ]);
    
    console.log(result.U);
    console.log(result.S);
    console.log(result.VT);
    
    result = lapack.sgetrf([
        [1, 2, 3],
        [3, 4, 5],
        [5, 6, 7]
    ]);
    
    console.log(result.LU);
    console.log(result.IPIV);
    
    /*
    conveniently wrapped processes
    */
    
    // perform a complete LU factorization
    var lu = lapack.lu([
        [1, 2, 3],
        [3, 4, 5],
        [5, 6, 7]
    ]);
    
    console.log(lu.L);
    console.log(lu.U);
    console.log(lu.P);
    
    
    // perform a complete QR factorization
    var qr = lapack.qr([
        [1, 2, 3],
        [3, 4, 5],
        [5, 6, 7]
    ]);
    
    console.log(qr.Q);
    console.log(qr.R);
    
    // solve a system of linear equations
    
    var a = [
    	[2, 4],
    	[2, 8]];
    
    var b = [[2], 
    	[4]];
    
    var result = lapack.sgesv(a, b);
    console.log(result.X);
    console.log(result.P);
    

    LAPACK Building

    These instructions are raw and a work in progress, but should work fine for linux and MacOS. The net result will be LAPACK and BLAS shared libraries.

    If you haven't done so already download the LAPACK source http://www.netlib.org/lapack/

    After unpacking the source create a make.inc based on the make.inc.example provided. For the purposes of this document I'll assume you have the "gfortran" fortran compiler installed.

    Then make the following changes:

    make.inc

    CHANGE:

    FORTRAN  = gfortran
    OPTS     = -O2
    DRVOPTS  = $(OPTS)
    NOOPT    = -O0
    LOADER   = gfortran
    LOADOPTS =
    

    TO:

    UNAME := $(shell uname)
    
    FORTRAN  = gfortran
    OPTS     = -O2 -fPIC
    DRVOPTS  = $(OPTS)
    NOOPT    = -O0 -fPIC
    LOADER   = gfortran
    LOADOPTS =
    
    ifeq ($(UNAME), Darwin)
    LIBEXT=dylib
    else
    LIBEXT=so
    endif
    

    BLAS/SRC/Makefile

    CHANGE:

    all: $(BLASLIB)
    

    TO:

    all: $(BLASLIB) libblas.$(LIBEXT)
    
    libblas.$(LIBEXT):
        $(FORTRAN) -shared -o $@ *.o
        cp $@ ../../$@
    

    CHANGE:

    clean:
        rm -f *.o
    

    TO:

    clean:
        rm -f *.o
        rm -f *.a
        rm -f *.$(LIBEXT)
    

    SRC/Makefile

    CHANGE:

    all: ../$(LAPACKLIB)
    

    TO:

    all: ../$(LAPACKLIB) liblapack.$(LIBEXT)
    
    liblapack.$(LIBEXT):
        gfortran -shared -o $@ $(ALLOBJ) -lblas -L..
        cp $@ ../$@
    

    CHANGE:

    clean:
        rm -f *.o
    

    TO:

    clean:
        rm -f *.o
        rm -f *.a
        rm -f *.$(LIBEXT)
    

    Compiling

    make blaslib
    make lapacklib
    

    Installing

    # for linux
    cp liblapack.so libblas.so /usr/lib
    # for macos
    # NOTE! this might be dangerous now. macs ship with liblapack.dylib now?
    # regardless, i don't suggest installing a custom lapack right now on Mac
    cp liblapack.dylib libblas.dylib /usr/lib
