Math Library

Math libraries offer a very attractive option for using the power of Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors quickly and effectively, often as easy as swapping out a processor optimized library for compatible library that uses the combined capabilities of the processor and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Intel has done a great job giving several powerful options for programs that utilize the Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) already, or use industry standard interfaces like BLAS, CBLAS, LAPACK, LAPACKE, FFTW, and ScaLAPACK, to have access to the power of Intel processors and the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.

Table 11.1 lists the three programming models for using Intel MKL with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. These programming models ...
