The design and development of high-performance libraries face many unique issues. The interface to such libraries must hide the complexity of the underlying algorithms from the application developer and at the same time allow access to features and functionality. The algorithms should not impose restrictions on the application developer and yet need to provide efficiency. The issue of data-locality often brings with it a requirement of integration of the computational model throughout the application, making it difficult to effectively use an individual library routine.
The speakers in this minisymposium bring a varied set of perspectives and experiences and will discuss design issues from a range of language and application standpoints.Organizer: Anne E. Trefethen
