12.2 Examples

The following program computes the product of two matrices using the Level-3 blas function dgemm,

[ 0.11 0.12 0.13 ]  [ 1011 1012 ]     [ 367.76 368.12 ]
[ 0.21 0.22 0.23 ]  [ 1021 1022 ]  =  [ 674.06 674.72 ]
                    [ 1031 1032 ]

The matrices are stored in row major order, according to the C convention for arrays.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <gsl/gsl_blas.h>

int
main (void)
{
  double a[] = { 0.11, 0.12, 0.13,
                 0.21, 0.22, 0.23 };

  double b[] = { 1011, 1012,
                 1021, 1022,
                 1031, 1032 };

  double c[] = { 0.00, 0.00,
                 0.00, 0.00 };

  gsl_matrix_view A = gsl_matrix_view_array(a, 2, 3);
  gsl_matrix_view B = gsl_matrix_view_array(b, 3, 2);
  gsl_matrix_view C = gsl_matrix_view_array(c, 2, 2);

  /* Compute C = A B */

  gsl_blas_dgemm (CblasNoTrans, CblasNoTrans,
                  1.0, &A.matrix, &B.matrix,
                  0.0, &C.matrix);

  printf ("[ %g, %g\n", c[0], c[1]);
  printf ("  %g, %g ]\n", c[2], c[3]);

  return 0;  
}

Here is the output from the program,

$ ./a.out
[ 367.76, 368.12
  674.06, 674.72 ]
