LAPLib (Linear Algebra Performance Library) is an object-oriented software library which provides an elegant interface to access the optimized performance of these old-style libraries. LAPLib transparently handles all low-level details concerned with invocation of BLAS and LAPACK functions. Using LAPLib, developers can write expressions in a C++ object-oriented fashion and greatly reduce the complexity associated with using BLAS and LAPACK routines while maintaining excellent performance.
