A parallel version of the self-verified method for solving linear systems was presented in previous publications. In this research we propose improvements aiming at a better performance. The idea is to implement an algorithm that uses technologies as MPI communication primitives associated to libraries as LAPACK, BLAS and C-XSC, aiming to provide both self-verification and speed-up at the same time. The algorithms should find an enclosure even for ill-conditioned problems. In this scenario, a parallel version of a self-verified solver for dense linear systems appears to be essential in order to solve bigger problems. Moreover, the major goal of this research is to provide a free, fast, reliable and accurate solver for dense linear systems.
