Random thoughts on High Performance Computing


Blaze 2.1 has been released

Blaze is an open-source, high-performance C++ math library for dense and sparse arithmetic based on Smart Expression Templates. Just in time for ISC’14, Blaze 2.1 has been released. The focus of this latest release is the improvement and extension of the shared memory parallelization capabilities: In addition to OpenMP parallelization, Blaze 2.1 now also enables shared memory parallelization based on C++11 and Boost threads.  Additionally, the underlying architecture for the parallel execution and automatic, context-sensitive optimization has been significantly improved. This not only improves the performance but also allows for an efficient parallel handling of computations involving block-structured vectors and matrices.
