About This Library


Vector Statistical Library (VSL) performs pseudorandom and quasi-random vector generation as well as summary statistics calculations, convolution and correlation mathematical operations. VSL is an integral part of Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL).

VSL provides a number of generator subroutines implementing commonly used continuous and discrete distributions to help improve their performance. All these distributions are based on the highly optimized Basic Random Number Generators (BRNGs) and Vector Math Library (VML), the library of vector transcendental functions.

Optimization Notice

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.
