Direct methods for solving large sparse linear systems of equations are popular because of their generality and robustness. Their main weakness is that the memory they require usually increases rapidly with problem size. We discuss the design and development of the first release of a new symmetric direct solver that aims to circumvent this limitation by allowing the system matrix, intermediate data, and the matrix factors to be stored externally. The code, which is written in Fortran and calledâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
