### Abstract

This paper surveys the current state of applications of large dense numerical linear algebra, and the influence of parallel computing. Furthermore, we attempt to crystalize many important ideas that we feel have been sometimes been misunderstood in the rush to write fast programs. 1 Introduction This paper represents my continuing efforts to track the status of large dense linear algebra problems. The goal is to shatter the barriers that separate the various interested communities while commenting on the influence of parallel computing. A secondary goal is to crystalize the most important ideas that have all too often been obscured by the details of machines and algorithms. Parallel supercomputing is in the spotlight. In the race towards the proliferation of papers on person X's experiences with machine Y (and why his algorithm runs faster than person Z's), sometimes we have lost sight of the applications for which these algorithms are meant to be useful. This paper concentrates on la...
