The Meta Matrix Library is a modular designed collection of C libraries. It was developed as part of the Free Finite Element Package to provide easy and consistent access to numerical linear algebra software for sparse and dense matrices. The dense matrix and vector operations of the package are based on LAPACK and BLAS (focused upon ATLAS). For more details of LAPACK and BLAS see Related Links. Beyond this MEML supports UMFPACK ( SuperLU projected ) as solver for linear systems of equations with sparse matrices.

MEML can use OpenMP or the Posix-Thread-Version of ATLAS to enable shared-memory parallelizing.
Right now version 0.7 is available which is a beta-Version.
You should consider this before using MEML!

MEML should meet the following requirements:
The Package should be easy to be used, well documented, stable, fast, portable and last but not least Open Source Software.
