Chapter 1 LINEAR ALGEBRA 1.1 Linear Algebra and Mathematical Libraries R.J. Allan Many scientific and engineering applications perform numerically intensive calculations relying heavily on vector and/or matrix operations. As a result the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms library (BLAS), the Engineering Scientific Subroutine Library (ESSL) and the FORTRAN-77 equivalent were benchmarked on a single node on the IBM SP2 as well as on the Cray T3D and Intel iPSC/860. One of the fundamental requirements in realising the potential of past and present generations of high performance computers is the availability of efficient implementations of...
