The Blaze High Performance Math Library

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this presentation we introduce the Blaze C++ math library, a hot contender for the linear algebra performance throne. Blaze is an open-source, high-performance library for dense and sparse arithmetic. It combines elegance and ease of use with HPC-grade performance, making it one of the most intuitive and at the same time fastest C++ math libraries available.

We demonstrate its basic linear algebra functionality by means of several BLAS level 1 to 3 operations and explain why Blaze outperforms even well established linear algebra libraries. Additionally, we present some advanced features that enable users to adapt Blaze to special circumstances: custom data structures, custom operations, and the customizable error reporting mechanism.
