I would look at two things:
- first, are you sure matlab is not using the MKL instead of accelerate
framework ? I have not used matlab in ages, but you should be able to check
by using otool -L to some of the core dll of matlab, to find out which
libraries are linked to it
- second, it could be that matlab eig and numpy eig don't use the same
underlying lapack API (do they give you the same result ?). This would
already be a bit harder to check, unless it is documented explicitly in
