#### Description

The `Wilkinson' matrices are order N matrices with unit diagonal and
the negative of the parameter C filling the lower triangle.
#### Relevance

Gaussian elimination with partial pivoting applied to these matrices
yields a growth factor of
**(1+C)**^{N-1}, for multiplier C
(0 <= C <= 1)
