The Software for Linear Algebra Targeting Exascale (SLATE) project is to provide fundamental dense linear algebra capabilities to the US Department of Energy and to the high-performance computing (HPC) community at large. To this end, SLATE will provide basic dense matrix operations (e.g., matrix multiplication, rank-k update, triangular solve), linear systems solvers, least square solvers, singular value and eigenvalue solvers.


Pull (Download)

To download the latest version of slate run,

docker pull

or to download a specific version of slate run,

docker pull


To run the container as an application run,

docker run --rm slate --version

or to run the container in an interactive session run,

docker run -it --rm bash

Mounting volumes between the container and your machine

To access files from your machine within the slate container you’ll have to mount them using the -v external/path:internal/path option.

For example,

docker run -v ~/Documents/Data:/Data slate /Data/myData.csv

which will mount the ~/Documents/Data directory on your computer to the /Data directory within the container.


If you’re looking to use this container in an HPC environment we recommend using Singularity-HPC to use the container just as any other module on the cluster. Check out the SHPC slate container here.
