Dear Dan,
Yes, you can use uBLAS to invert matrices, but this might not be the optimal
way to do it. You use UBLAS to invert a matrix by doing solves on each column
of a unit matrix.
GluCat uses the uBLAS routines, originally because Joerg Walter wrote them
specially for GluCat, and then because it was the easiest thing to do.
Best regards
