Title: Using PLASMA in the NAG library

Abstract:  The NAG library uses LAPACK heavily for dense linear algebra. However modern CPUs require a new approach to software to exploit the ever increasing parallelism. One library taking a novel approach is the PLASMA library, which implements the functionality of LAPACK with task based parallelism. This project aims to use PLASMA from within the NAG library where LAPACK has traditionally been used.

Biography :  Joseph Dobson is a Computer Science graduate and has been working on the KTP with the University of Manchester and NAG since June 2012.
