ILOG CPLEX is an environment for optimization problems. ILOG CPLEX algorithms can be accessed from the CPLEX Component Libraries as well as the CPLEX Interactive Optimizer, an easy-to-use interactive program. CPLEX provides all the basic features and utilities for using these solvers: sophisticated problem preprocessing; file reading and writing utilities; reporting; messaging control; interactive revision capability; efficient restart from an advanced basis; sensitivity analysis; and an infeasibility finder.

SuperLU is a general purpose library for the direct solution of large, sparse, nonsymmetric systems of linear equations on high performance machines. The library is written in C and is callable from either C or Fortran. The library routines will perform an LU decomposition with partial pivoting and triangular system solves through forward and back substitution. The LU factorization routines can handle non-square matrices but the triangular solves are performed only for square matrices. The matrix columns may be preordered (before factorization) either through library or user supplied routines. This preordering for sparsity is completely separate from the factorization. Working precision iterative refinement subroutines are provided for improved backward stability. Routines are also provided to equilibrate the system, estimate the condition number, calculate the relative backward error, and estimate error bounds for the refined solutions.
