BLAS1_Z
Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms
Level 1
Double Precision Complex Arithmetic


BLAS1_Z is a C library which implements the Level 1 BLAS, or Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms.

The BLAS are a small core library of linear algebra utilities, which can be highly optimized for various architectures. Software that relies on the BLAS is thus highly portable, and will typically run very efficiently.

The Level 1 BLAS are primarily for use in vector operations. In certain cases, they may also be used to operate on the rows or columns of a two-dimensional array.
