Research Computing: New License Key for NAG Numerical Routines Library

CiCS manages the University's licenses for the NAG Numerical Routines Library for Fortran and C programmers. Our site license offers a cost effective way to support research by allowing us to install these libraries on any workstation within the campus.

If you have previously installed NAG on a personal or departmental Linux computer, you will need to update your installation with the new license key using info from the following web page:

   http://www.wrgrid.group.shef.ac.uk/local/nag.html

The NAG libraries are also available on 'iceberg' the central HPC cluster for general use.  Example programs that access the NAG library can be obtained on iceberg by using the commands:

   nagexample   for Fortran

 and

   nagc_example  for C/C++

We have licenses for all Linux 32bit and 64bit implementations of the NAG Numerical Routines Library but we will cease to support the Windows implementations of NAG at Sheffield University during the next academic year.
