Documentation for older versions of Intel® Math Kernel Library is available for download only. For a list of available documentation downloads by product version, see these pages:
 What's New Fortran interface: Developer Reference for Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library - Fortran
This publication describes the
C
interface.
Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS)
The BLAS routines provide vector, matrix-vector, and matrix-matrix operations.
Sparse BLAS
The Sparse BLAS routines provide basic operations on sparse vectors and matrices.
Sparse QR
The Sparse QR Routines provide a multifrontal sparse QR factorization method for solving a sparse system of linear equations.
LAPACK
The LAPACK routines solve systems of linear equations, least square problems, eigenvalue and singular value problems, and Sylvester's equations.
Statistical Functions
The Statistical Functions provides a set of routines implementing commonly used pseudorandom random number generators (RNG) with continuous distribution.
Direct and Iterative Sparse Solvers
Among several options for solving sparse linear systems of equations,
oneMKL
offers a direct sparse solver based on PARDISO*, which is referred to here as Intel MKL PARDISO.
Vector Mathematics Functions
The Vector Mathematics (VM) functions compute core mathematical functions on vector arguments.
Vector Statistics Functions
The Vector Statistics (VS) functions generate vectors of pseudorandom numbers with different types of statistical distributions and perform convolution and correlation computations.
Fourier Transform Functions
The Fourier Transform Functions offer several options for computing Fast Fourier Transforms (FFTs).
