Sparse BLAS Level 1 Routines

This section describes Sparse BLAS Level 1, an extension of BLAS Level 1 included in the Intel® Math Kernel Library beginning with the Intel MKL release 2.1. Sparse BLAS Level 1 is a group of routines and functions that perform a number of common vector operations on sparse vectors stored in compressed form.

Naming Conventions

Similar to BLAS, the names of Sparse BLAS subprograms have prefixes that determine the data type involved: s and d for single- and double-precision real; c and z for single- and double-precision complex respectively.


Computes the conjugated dot product of a compressed sparse complex vector with a full-storage complex vector.
