Single Precision Complex Matrix-Vector Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms

BLAS2_C, a FORTRAN77 library which constitutes the Level 2 Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS), for matrix-vector operations using single precision complex arithmetic.

The BLAS are a small core library of linear algebra utilities, which can be highly optimized for various architectures.


The computer code and data files described and made available on this web page are distributed under the GNU LGPL license.


BLAS2_C is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
