Abstract

Matrix Depot is a Julia software package that provides easy access to a large and diverse collection of test matrices. Its novelty is threefold. First, it is extensible by the user, and so can be adapted to include the user's own test problems. In doing so it facilitates experimentation and makes it easier to carry out reproducible research. Second, it amalgamates in a single framework three different types of matrix collections, comprising parametrized test matrices, regularization test problems, and real-life sparse matrix data. Third, it fully exploits the Julia language. It uses multiple dispatch to help provide a simple interface and, in particular, to allow matrices to be generated in any of the numeric data types supported by the language.
