The Road to Exascale and Legacy Software for Dense Linear Algebra
In this talk, we will look at the current state of high performance computing and the next stage of extreme computing. With extreme computing, there will be fundamental changes in the character of floating-point arithmetic and data movement. In this talk, we will look at how extreme-scale computing has caused algorithm and software developers to change their way of thinking on implementing and program-specific applications.
