ALGOL LIBRARY PROCEDURES
The Library of Algol procedures currently available on Atlas is stored on the Standard Algol Library Tape ALGOLIB. Full details of how to incorporate these library procedures into an Algol program are given in the Atlas Algol System manual. A subset of the more widely used procedures are available on the disc area R502 ALGOLIB. In the following index, library names followed by asterisk indicate that the item is also available on the disc area. The library is divided into three main groups SC, ACM and ICT.
The SC group are procedures specifically designed to run with the GROATS graphic output system. Full details of these can be found in the GROATS manual.
The Algorithms available under the Class Name ACM are those published in the Communications of the ACM. The numbering of the Algorithms is the same as given in the CACM. These Algorithms have been punched at the Atlas Laboratory. Corrections given in Certifications have been added. Trial compilations have been used to give a syntactic check of the Algorithms. No semantic checking of the Algorithms has been attempted. The definitions of these Algorithms can either be found in the relevant copy of the Communications or alternatively a complete set of definitions is available from the ACM. A copy of this is available at the Atlas Laboratory.
The class name ICT has been used for all library items that do not fall into either of the other two classes. Complete details of these are given in the following sections. These procedures should be fully debugged and working.
ICT50 - 99
ICT50 - 99 are a set of procedures for various numerical operations. The methods employed are among the most reliable discovered so far and the procedures should be fully debugged.
- ICT50-59 - linear algebra
- ICT60-69 - eigenproblems
- ICT70-74 - solution of algebraic equations
- ICT75-79 - solution of ordinary differential equations
- ICT80-84 - numerical quadrature
- ICT85-95 - approximation of functions
- ICT96-99 - probability
No procedure is ever completely foolproof, and a brief note is made indicating where difficulties may arise. On the whole, the procedures will be most satisfactory for medium-sized problems where considerations of storage and/or computing time are not of over-riding importance.
Items ICT55, 56, and 57 are from Algol 60 Procedures in Numerical Algebra, Part I by T J Dekker (Mathematisch Centrum Amsterdam Tract no. 22).
All other items are selected from Procedures Algol en Analyse Numerique published by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris.
