A library for NLA operations

Latest on Hackage:0.1.1

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

This package defines a framework for linear algebra operations, allowing:

  • Definition of multiple instances of BLAS and LAPACK operations.

  • Definition of multiple representations of vectors and matrices.

  • Arbitrary combination of strategies and structure representations.

  • Type-safe manipulation of context information associated to each strategy.

  • Definition of specialized strategies for a given representation.

The framework is based on BLAS (http://www.netlib.org/blas/) and LAPACK (http://www.netlib.org/lapack/) linear algebra libraries, as these are well known libraries in the area. For this reason the design of the framework is strongly oriented to these libraries. Anyway it is possible to easily define operations not considered in these libraries and still maintaining the above properties.

Many representations and strategy definitions (from which many are parallel) can be found in the fpnla-examples (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/fpnla-examples) package.

Details about the package may be found in the paper: Towards a functional run-time for dense NLA domain. In Proceedings of the 2Nd ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional High-performance Computing. New York, NY, USA. ACM, pages 85-96 (http://www.fing.edu.uy/~mviera/papers/fhpc13.pdf).
