Intel numerical libraries¶
Intel libraries for high performance in numerical computing
Intel Math Kernel Library¶
Intel Math Kernel Library (Intel MKL) is a library of math kernel subroutines, extensively threaded and optimized for maximum performance. Intel MKL unites and provides these basic components: BLAS, LAPACK, ScaLapack, PARDISO, FFT, VML, VSL, Data fitting, Feast Eigensolver and many more.

Intel Integrated Performance Primitives¶
Intel Integrated Performance Primitives, version 7.1.1, compiled for AVX is available, via module ipp. The IPP is a library of highly optimized algorithmic building blocks for media and data applications. This includes signal, image and frame processing algorithms, such as FFT, FIR, Convolution, Optical Flow, Hough transform, Sum, MinMax and many more.
$ ml ipp

Intel Threading Building Blocks¶
Intel Threading Building Blocks (Intel TBB) is a library that supports scalable parallel programming using standard ISO C++ code. It does not require special languages or compilers. It is designed to promote scalable data parallel programming. Additionally, it fully supports nested parallelism, so you can build larger parallel components from smaller parallel components. To use the library, you specify tasks, not threads, and let the library map tasks onto threads in an efficient manner.
