Scientific Computing on Itanium®-based Systems

Book Type: Intel Press Books
Category: Programming
Table of Contents:

Written for professionals who need to write, port, or maintain reliable, accurate, and efficient numerical software for the Itanium® architecture, Scientific Computing on Itanium®-based Systems shows you how to construct key numerical infrastructure and application programs.

This book describes the crucial techniques required for stability and reliability in developing numerical kernels and applications. Through numerous tested examples, the authors explain how you can get the most from the 64-bit architecture. This combination of explanation with example helps you to make difficult computations more easily and to increase the performance of your numerical software.

This book provides examples to solve problems encountered in scientific and engineering computations, such as:

Polynomial evaluation
Complex arithmetic
Quad-precision arithmetic
Software pipelining, to include register rotation and modulo-scheduled loop support
SIMD instructions
Interval arithmetic
Fast-Fourier Transformation (FFT) algorithms
Numerical linear algebra and basic linear algebra subprograms (BLAS)
Vector Math Library (VML)

"With the increasing availability of Itanium®-based platforms, the scientific computing community will welcome this book."

Professor Zhaojun Bai, Department of Computer Science, University of California at Davis
