Roadmap to Julia BLAS and LinearAlgebra

07/29/2021, 7:30 PM8:00 PM UTC

BLAS & LAPACK are an integral component of many numerical algorithms. Due to their importance, a lot of effort has gone into optimizing ASM/C/Fortran implementations. Nonetheless, early work demonstrated Julia implementations were often faster than competitors, while laying groundwork for new routines specialized for new problems. We discuss a roadmap toward providing Julia BLAS and LAPACK libraries, from optimizations in LoopVectorization to libraries like Octavian and RecursiveFactorization.
