This task focuses on research and development in algorithms and software which fill existing gaps in the software infrastructure for high performance mathematical computations of particular concern to NIST. Emphasis is on core linear algebra computations (especially for large sparse problems), special function evaluation, inverse (and other ill-posed) problems arising in metrology, and large-scale optimization.
