This paper describes a model implementation and test software for the Level 2 Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (Level 2 BLAS). Level 2 BLAS are targeted at matrix-vector operations with the aim of providing more efficient, but portable, implementations of algorithms on high-performance computers....
A technique is presented for the graphical representation of some contour (level) surfaces of a function of three variables defined by its values on an array of points ( x i , y j , z k ). The algorithm involves drawing and projecting the contour curves corresponding to the cross sections x = x I...
ODESSA is a package of FORTRAN routines for simultaneous solution of ordinary differential equations and the associated first-order parametric sensitivity equations, yielding the ODE solution vector y &barbelow;( t ) and the first-order sensitivity coefficients with respect to equation parameters...
This correspondence examines the influence of the summation order on the numerical accuracy of the resulting sum when the addition is performed using floating-point, finite-precision arithmetic. A simple statistical model is used to find the relative performance of various addition procedures. It...
