Level 2 BLAS

The underlying mathematical formulation is

    y ← α A·x + β y

where A is a (m, n) matrix, x and y are vectors, and α and β are scalars.

If β is zero, y is set to the result of the matrix/vector multiplication. If β is one, the result of the matrix/vector multiplication is added to y. Otherwise, y is scaled by β before adding the result of the matrix/vector multiplication.

General matrix/vector multiplication.

  • First argument a_op is the transpose operator for the matrix A. Value is either BLAS_NO_TRANS or BLAS_TRANS.

  • Second argument m is the number of matrix rows.

  • Third argument n is the number of matrix columns.

  • Fourth argument alpha is the multiplier.

  • Fifth argument a is the matrix operand (an array reference).

  • Sixth argument a_ind is the array index of the first array element for the array a.

  • Seventh argument a_incr is the array index increment for the array a.

  • Eighth argument x is the vector operand (an array reference).

  • Ninth argument x_ind is the array index of the first array element for the array x.

  • Tenth argument x_incr is the array index increment for the array x.

  • Eleventh argument beta is the scale factor for the result vector.

  • Twelfth argument y is the result vector (an array reference).

  • Thirteenth argument y_ind is the array index of the first array element for the array y.

  • Fourteenth argument y_incr is the array index increment for the array y.

Level 3 BLAS

The underlying mathematical formulation is

    C ← α A·B + β C

where C is a (m, n) matrix, A and B are matrices, and α and β are scalars.

If β is zero, C is set to the result of the matrix/matrix multiplication. If β is one, the result of the matrix/matrix multiplication is added to C. Otherwise, C is scaled by β before adding the result of the matrix/matrix multiplication.

blas_dgemm (a_op, b_op, m, n, k, alpha, a, a_ind, a_incr, b, b_ind, b_incr, beta, c, c_ind, c_incr)

  • Fifteenth argument c_ind is the array index of the first array element for the array c.

  • Sixteenth argument c_incr is the array index increment for the array c.
