Quote from `` BLAS Frequently Asked Questions''

`` 1.1) What are the BLAS?

The BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) are high quality "building
block" routines for performing basic vector and matrix operations. Level
1 BLAS do vector-vector operations, Level 2 BLAS do matrix-vector
operations, and Level 3 BLAS do matrix-matrix operations. Because the
BLAS are efficient, portable, and widely available, they're commonly
used in the development of high quality linear algebra software, LINPACK
and LAPACK for example.''
