BLAS
and Sparse BLAS Routines

Intel® Math Kernel Library
implements
the BLAS
and Sparse BLAS
routines
, and BLAS-like extensions
.
The routine descriptions are arranged in several sections:
The question mark in the group name corresponds to different character codes indicating the data type (
s
,
d
,
c
, and
z
or their combination).
When BLAS or Sparse BLAS routines encounter an error, they call the error reporting routine
xerbla
.

Product and Performance Information

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
