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....
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...
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...
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...
