BLAS means "Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines".
Many numerical subroutines depend on the BLAS libs. It is therefore
rather important to have a high performant, optimized implementation
of BLAS available.
The BLAS routines are divided into three levels (vector/vector
rotines, matrix/vector routines and matrix/matrix routines).
Some benchmarks are based on famous BLAS routines, e.g. on
DGEMM (Double precision GEneral MAtrix Multiply).
Atlas is a "self-optimizing" implementation of the BLAS libs.
