Abstract : On the CDC 6400 computer this FORTRAN Extended version of the Rheinboldt-Mesztenyi computer program for solving sparse symmetric matrix equations was tested with respect to certain sample problems representative of structural analysis problems. This program does not appear to be competitive with CSKYDG, another linear equation solver. Lack of several special features in the CDC 6400 instruction set results in high overhead for manipulating the data structures used. (Author)
