MPI is a library specification for message-passing, proposed as a
standard by a broadly based committee of vendors, implementors, and
users. Machine-specific (optimized) as well as freely available MPI
libraries are available for a large variety of systems. Browse the
Message Passing Interface (MPI)
standard web page for more information.
The BLAS are high quality
"building block" routines for performing basic vector and matrix
operations. A lot of "BLAS-related" information can be found at this
site. In particular, a reference implementation is available. This
reference implementation is not optimized for any
system, and it is therefore not recommended to use it
for benchmarking purposes.
optimized BLAS libraries are available for a variety of computer
systems. For further details, please contact your local vendor
representative. Alternatively, one may also consider using automatic
code generators such as ATLAS.
This tool automatically generates a complete and optimized BLAS
library for a large variety of modern systems.
VSIPL is an API defined by an open
standard comprised of embedded signal and image processing hardware and
software vendors, academia, users, and government labs. A lot of
"VSIPL-related" information can be found at this site. In particular, a
reference implementation is available. Machine-specific optimized VSIPL
libraries are available for a variety of computer systems. For further
details, please contact your local vendor representative.
