Intel® Math Kernel Library Quick Reference

Revision 6

The Intel® Math Kernel Library is a set of highly optimized routines for solving problems of computational linear algebra, performing the discrete Fourier transforms, and solving some other computation intensive problems. The library includes routines of the BLAS, Sparse BLAS, LAPACK and ScaLAPACK1) packages (Fortran interfaces), Sparse Solver, CBLAS (C interface to BLAS routines), as well as Discrete Fourier and Fast Fourier transform routines, Vector Mathematical Functions, Vector Generators of Statistical Distributions (Fortran and C interfaces). The library functions ensure high performance when run on Intel® processors. Level 3 BLAS and most LAPACK routines, in particular, take advantage of multiprocessor computation.

This Quick Reference (document number 253425-006) includes the following sections:

1)ScaLAPACK software is included only with the Intel® Cluster MKL product.
