This provides a set of sparse matrix types for Python, with modules
- Iterative methods for solving linear systems of equations
- A set of standard preconditioners
- An interface to a direct solver for sparse linear systems of equations
- The JDSYM eigensolver.
All of these modules are implemented as C extension modules based on
standard sparse and dense matrix libraries (UMFPACK/AMD, SuperLU,
BLAS/LAPACK) for maximum performance and robustness.
