A Note to LinuX Cluster Users: Due to the very inhomogenious installation of the LinuX Cluster computers most of the software versions listed below refer to latest CentOS LinuX OS version 6. So if one of these listed programs is not available or does not run on your local LinuX box, change to a LinuX site running a older OS version as listed in System Features of The LinuX Cluster Guide.

Shells and Programming Tools

ARPACK Library (Version 3.1.3-1.el6) (20. 1. 2014) in directory /usr/lib or /usr/lib64
ARPACK is a collection of Fortran77 subroutines designed to solve large scale eigenvalue problems.
The package is designed to compute a few eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvectors of a general n by n matrix A. It is most appropriate for large sparse or structured matrices A where structured means that a matrix-vector product w <- Av requires order n rather than the usual order n2 floating point operations. This software is based upon an algorithmic variant of the Arnoldi process called the Implicitly Restarted Arnoldi Method (IRAM).

LAM / MPI (Version 7.1.2-14.el5) at CentOS 5 sites only! (27. 6. 2008)
LAM (Local Area Multicomputer) is an Message-Passing Interface (MPI) programming environment and development system for heterogeneous computers on a network. With LAM/MPI, a dedicated cluster or an existing network computing infrastructure can act as one parallel computer to solve one problem. LAM/MPI is considered to be "cluster friendly" because it offers daemon-based process startup/control as well as fast client-to-client message passing protocols. LAM/MPI can use TCP/IP and/or shared memory for message passing.
LAPACK Library (Version 3.1) (1. 2. 2007) in directory /net/appls/lib
(Version 3.2.1-4.el6) (10. 4. 2013) in directories /usr/lib and /usr/lib64
LAPACK (Linear Algebra PACKage) is a standard library for numerical linear algebra. LAPACK provides routines for solving systems of simultaneous linear equations, least-squares solutions of linear systems of equations, eigenvalue problems, and singular value problems. Associated matrix factorizations (LU, Cholesky, QR, SVD, Schur, and generalized Schur) and related computations (reordering of Schur factorizations and estimating condition numbers) are also included.
LAPACK95 Library (Version 3.0) (4. 8. 2005) in directory /net/appls/LAPACK95
LAPACK95 is a Fortran95 interface to the Fortran 77 LAPACK library. It improves upon the original user-interface to the LAPACK package, taking advantage of the considerable simplifications which Fortran 95 allows. The design of LAPACK95 exploits assumed-shape arrays, optional arguments, and generic interfaces. The Fortran 95 interface has been implemented by writing Fortran 95 "wrappers" to call existing routines from the LAPACK package. This interface can persist unchanged even if the underlying Fortran 77 LAPACK code is rewritten to take advantage of the new features of Fortran 95.

Modules environment (Version 3.2.10) (11. 6. 2013) 
The Environment Modules package provides for the dynamic modification of a user's environment via modulefiles.
Each modulefile contains the information needed to configure the shell for an application. Once the Modules package is initialized, the environment can be modified on a per-module basis using the module command which interprets modulefiles. Typically modulefiles instruct the module command to alter or set shell environment variables such as PATH, MANPATH, etc. modulefiles may be shared by many users on a system and users may have their own collection to supplement or replace the shared modulefiles.
Modules can be loaded and unloaded dynamically and atomically, in an clean fashion.
