SLICOT Working Note 1998-5, June 1998.

This paper contains guidelines for setting up benchmark collections for SLICOT. The purpose of these SLICOT benchmark collections is to establish an environment for testing the subroutines within the SLICOT library and compare their performance with other numerical software. Guidelines for the submission of benchmark examples by external contributors are given, as well as guidelines for the implementation of benchmark routines within SLICOT.
