As far as I know, clapack matrices are colomn-based.

Here is a quote from the clapack readme

``The CLAPACK library was built using a Fortran to C conversion utility
called f2c. The entire Fortran 77 LAPACK library is run through f2c to
obtain C code, and then modified to improve readability. [...]

However, f2c is designed to create C code that is still callable from
Fortran, so all arguments must be passed using Fortran calling
conventions and *data structures*. [...]

[...] If you now wish to operate on the matrix A, remember that A is
in *column-major order*.''
