### Abstract

This article describes the subroutine library SLICOT that provides Fortran 77 implementations of numerical algorithms for computations in systems and control theory. Around a nucleus of basic numerical linear algebra subroutines, this library builds methods for the design and analysis of linear control systems. A brief history of the library is given together with a description of the current version of the library and the on-going activities to complete and improve the library in several aspects. 1 Introduction Systems and control theory are disciplines widely used to describe, control, and optimize industrial and economical processes. There is now a huge amount of theoretical results available which has lead to a variety of methods and algorithms used throughout industry and academia. Although based on theoretical results, these methods often fail when applied to real-life problems, which often tend to be ill-posed or of high dimensions. This failing is frequently due to the lack of...
