Description
The
cblas_gemm_bf16bf16f32
routines compute a scalar-matrix-matrix product and adds the result to a scalar-matrix product. The operation is defined as:
C := alpha*(op(A) *(op(B) + beta*C
where :

    op(
    X
    )
    is one of
    op(
    X
    ) =
    X
    or
    op(
    X
    ) =
    X
    T
    ,

    alpha
    and
    beta
    are scalars,

    A
    ,
    B
    , and
    C
    are matrices

    op(
    A
    )
    is
    m
    -by-
    k
    matrix,

    op(
    B
    )
    is
    k
    -by-
    n
    matrix,

    C
    is an
    m
    -by-
    n
    matrix.

Input Parameters
Layout
Specifies whether two-dimensional array storage is row-major (
CblasRowMajor
) or column-major (
CblasColMajor
).
transa
Specifies the form of op(
A
) used in the matrix multiplication:
if
transa
=
CblasNoTrans
, then
op(
A
) =
A
;
if
transa
=
CblasTrans
, then
op(
A
) =
A
T
.
transb
Specifies the form of op(
B
) used in the matrix multiplication:
if
transb
=
CblasNoTrans
, then
op(
B
) =
B
;
if
transb
=
CblasTrans
, then
op(
B
) =
B
T
.
m
Specifies the number of rows of the matrix
op(
A
)
and of the matrix
C
. The value of
m
must be at least zero.
n
Specifies the number of columns of the matrix
op(
B
)
and the number of columns of the matrix
C
. The value of
n
must be at least zero.
k
Specifies the number of columns of the matrix
op(
A
)
and the number of rows of the matrix
op(
B
)
. The value of
k
must be at least zero.
alpha
Specifies the scalar
alpha
.

Example

For examples of routine usage, see these code examples in the
Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library
installation directory:

Application Notes
On architectures without native bfloat16 hardware instructions, matrix
A
and
B
are upconverted to single precision and
SGEMM
is called to compute matrix multiplication operation.
