Subject: Honorary Doctorate for Germund Dahlquist

Professor Germund Dahlquist was granted the title of Honorary Doctor of
Technology at Helsinki University of Technology on Friday, Sept. 9, 1994,
in recognition of his outstanding research within numerical mathematics
and for his promotion of this research area in Nordic countries.

On this occasion prof. Dahlquist gave a talk at the Institute of Mathematics
of HUT, the abstract of which follows.

"On a Summation Formula of E.Lindelo"f and Related Orthogonal Polynomials."


In E.Lindelo"f's book "Calcul des Residus", several formulas due to
Plana, Abel and (probably) Lindelo"f himself, are given for the transformation
of a slowly convergent (or even a divergent) series to a complex integral. We
shall see that this can be very efficiently computed by a Gauss-Christoffel
formula for a weight function that is independent of the particular series. In
this way, the summation formulas give about the same accuracy as the Epsilon
algorithm of P.Wynn with about the same amount of computation.

For one of these formulas the orthogonal polynomials, from which the
abscissas and weights in the integration formula are obtained, satisfy a
very neat recurrence formula with integer coefficients. This simplifies the
accurate computation of the abscissas and weights.

Subject: GEMM-Based Level 3 BLAS

I am pleased to announce that the GEMM-Based Level 3 BLAS are now
available from netlib.

1. High Performance Model Implementations

The GEMM-Based Level 3 BLAS concept utilizes the fact that it is
possible to formulate the Level 3 BLAS operations in terms of the
Level 3 operation for general matrix multiply and add, _GEMM, and
some Level 1 and Level 2 BLAS operations.
The GEMM-Based Level 3 BLAS model implementations are written in
Fortran 77 and designed to be highly efficient on machines with a
memory hierarchy. They are primarily intended for a single processor
on machines with local or global caches and micro processors with
on-chip caches. But they can also be parallelized using a
parallelizing compiler or parallel underlying BLAS kernels. All
routines are effectively structured to reduce data traffic in a
memory hierarchy.
The user supplies underlying routines, the Level 3 BLAS routine
_GEMM and some Level 1 and Level 2 BLAS kernels. If they are
efficiently optimized for the target machine, the GEMM-Based Level 3
BLAS model implementations offer:

o efficient use of vector instructions (compound instructions,
chaining, etc.), through _GEMM, Level 1 and Level 2 BLAS

o vector register reuse, through _GEMM and Level 2 BLAS

o efficient cache reuse, through internal blocking, use of local
arrays, and through _GEMM.

o column-wise referencing, for problems that would cause severe
performance degradation with row-wise referencing (except for
reference patterns in underlying BLAS routines).

o parallelism, through automatic parallelization by a compiler,
or by using parallel underlying BLAS kernels.

o a Level 3 BLAS library based on unconventional underlying
matrix multiply algorithms like, for example, Strassens or
Winograds algorithms.

2. GEMM-Based Level 3 BLAS Benchmark

The GEMM-Based Level 3 BLAS Benchmark is a tool for performance
evaluation of Level 3 BLAS implementations. With the announcement of
LAPACK, the need for high performance Level 3 BLAS became apparent.
LAPACK is based on calls to Level 3 BLAS routines. This benchmark
measures and compares performance of user-supplied and permanently
built-in Level 3 BLAS kernels. The built-in GEMM-Based Level 3 BLAS
kernels provide a lower limit on the performance to be expected from
a highly optimized Level 3 BLAS library.
The user-supplied Level 3 BLAS implementations are linked with the
benchmark program. When the program executes, timings are performed
according to specifications given in an input file. The user may
design his/her own tests or use the enclosed input files. The
following output results are optionally presented:

A. A collected mean value result, calculated from the performance
results of each of the user-supplied routines.

B. Tables, showing performance results in megaflops for each
routine and problem configuration and performance comparisons
between different routines.

The purpose of (A) is to provide a performance measure for Level 3
BLAS kernels covering each of the routines and a significant problem
suit. The result should be easy to compare between different
implementations and different machines. We propose two standard tests
with different problem configurations, _MARK01 and _MARK02, which are
enclosed as input files.
The tables in (B) are intended for program developers and others
who are interested in detailed performance information and
performance comparisons between the routines.
All routines are written in Fortran 77 for portability. No changes
should be necessary to run the program correctly on different target

3. Availability

The source code for the model implementations and the benchmark
program comes in single, double, complex, and double complex
precision data types and is freely available via netlib. Send an
e-mail with the following message
