Three parameters are used to count operations for the Level 3 BLAS:
the matrix dimensions 3#3, 4#4, and 198#198. In some cases we also
must know whether the matrix is multiplied on the left or right.
An exact count depends slightly on the
values of the scaling factors 590#590 and 591#591,
but in Table 2
we assume these parameters are always 598#598 or 53#53,
since that is how they are used in the LAPACK routines.
