rARPACK: Solvers for Large Scale Eigenvalue and SVD Problems

An R wrapper of the 'ARPACK' library <http://www.caam.rice.edu/software/ARPACK/> to solve large scale eigenvalue/vector problems. It is typically used to compute a few eigenvalues/vectors of an n by n matrix, e.g., the k largest eigenvalues, which is usually more efficient than eigen() if k << n. This package provides the 'eigs()' function which does the similar job as in 'Matlab', 'Octave', 'Python SciPy' and 'Julia'. It also provides the 'svds()' function to calculate the largest k singular values and corresponding singular vectors of a real matrix. Matrices can be given in either dense or sparse form.
