Arpack is a library for computing eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a linear operator. It has been used in many technical computing packages. The goal of the
GenericArpack.jl package is to create a Julia translation of Arpack. Right now, the Julia
GenericArpack.jl methods produce bitwise identical results to the
Arpack_jll methods for Float64 types in all testcases. The new library has zero dependency on BLAS and supports element types beyond those in Arpack, such as
