The Problem

ITK requires functionalities for solving large sparse linear systems.

The current solution obtained though VXL must be replaced because it relies internally on code whose Copyright is held by ACM, and is subject to a license that precludes commercial use.

Previous Review

Tom Vercauteren previously gathered the following list of options.
