We have a variety of plans for improving the Matrix Market.
Among these are the following.
Adding new test data
We expect to continue to add new matrices to our collection. If you
know of any interesting applications whose developers might be
willing to submit matrices,
Incorporating Release II of the Harwell-Boeing Collection
We are working with the John Lewis and Roger Grimes of Boeing and Iain Duff of
Rutherford Appleton Labs to prepare Matrix Market for Release II of the
Harwell-Boeing Sparse Matrix Collection. This release, termed
the Rutherford-Boeing Collection, will contain many new matrices, as well as a
variety of related data files (solutions, right-hand sides, eigenvalues,
eigenvectors, singular values, etc.)
Issuing the collection on CD-ROM
We are exploring the possibility of issuing the entire Matrix Market collection
on CD-ROM to facilitate easier local access.
