ABSTRACT:
Linear Algebra has always been a very useful tool in the field of Computer Science. Many techniques have been developed to help in the writing of graphics, internet search, and scientific computing algorithms. Such applications often use sequences of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS), and highly efficient implementations of those routines enable scientists to achieve high performance at little cost. The BLAS evolved from basic problems, such as dot products, to a large database including more complex problems, such as a matrix-matrix multiplication. Computer scientists apply tuning techniques to improve data locality and create highly efficient implementations of the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms and LAPACK, enabling scientists to build high-performance software at reduced cost. However, because the BLAS are individually optimized, when piecing together different BLAS routines, users may not see the performance they desire. Thus, BTO is being developed to handle these situations
