quite recently there has been a big buzz about the "Numerical age in D". For example in matrix-matrix multiplication Mir GLAS beat the OpenBLAS and Eigen (http://blog.mir.dlang.io/glas/benchmark/openblas/2016/09/23/glas-gemm-benchmark.html) math libraries.
To introduce you to this topic, Sebastian will give a presentation about
- History of Mir and other BLAS libraries
- SIMD instructions in D
- The power of @fastmath
- Mir GLAS kernel (Generic Linear Algebra Subprograms)
- Std.experimental.ndslice in practice
- Common optimization tricks in D
Please bring your laptops as we want to have a short coding session in the end.
