CULA Sparse is sold as a one year subscription that includes private support and product updates. At the end of the year, users may choose to renew their subscriptions or continue to use CULA Sparse without updates or support. Licenses are sold on a per-computer basis. If you have multiple machines or a cluster, you'll need to purchase a license for each machine or node. Subscriptions are transferable between accounts in the event a purchasing agent is required. If you are interested in a site license or distributing a product that uses CULA Sparse internally, please contact us directly.
With a valid academic e-mail address, students, professors, and researchers may obtain a single copy of CULA Sparse for personal use at no cost. Please note that this version does not include private support. To receive the special pricing, simply sign up using your academic e-mail address and you will automatically receive the discount. If your school or university is not on our allowed list, simply contact us to add your academic institution.
