Vector plus/minus one floating point number

Hi,

v?Add(n,a,b) performs element by element addition of vector a and vector b. Sometimes a single shift is required only, i.e. in this case b can be interpreted as a floating point number, i.e. a + b. One example is the calculation of centered values (with respect to the empirical distribution). Does MKL provides such a function as well? Off cause I can create a vector b of the same size as the input vector a and set b =b for each k, but I would like to avoid the memory allocation.

Best wishes

Hi Markus,

Please, have a look at Intel(R) MKL v?LinearFrac function which computes

y[i]=(scalea·a[i]+shifta)/(scaleb·b[i]+shiftb), i=1,2 … n

Thanks,

Andrey

Hi Markus,

I attach the example which shows how to use the function in your specific case. I will check with our internal team how to improve documentation for this function.

I'm not sure if the file is successfully attached. Copying the code of the

#include <stdio.h>
#include "mkl_vml.h"


int main()
{
  double a[10], *b;
  double r[10];
  double scalea = 1.0, scaleb = 0.0;
  double shifta = -1.0, shiftb = 1.0;


  MKL_INT i=0,n=10;

  a[0]=-10000.0000;
  a[1]=-7777.7777;
  a[2]=-5555.5555;
  a[3]=-3333.3333;
  a[4]=-1111.1111;
  a[5]=1111.1111;
  a[6]=3333.3333;
  a[7]=5555.5555;
  a[8]=7777.7777;
  a[9]=10000.0000;
 
  vdLinearFrac( n, a, b, scalea, shifta, scaleb, shiftb, r );


  for(i=0;i<10;i++) {
    printf("%25.14f %25.14f\n",a,r);
  }

  return 0;
}

Hi Markus,

yes, the function checks the parameters: if you provide a null denominator to the function, it will return error. I requested the owners of the functionality to have a look at your question and have more specific description of the function in the docs.

Hi Markus,

Yes,  we have tracking system for all requests. The one have been recorded in :

CQ DPD200572021 requires more details on behavior of linearFrac function in the documentation.

and one more DPD200331505 add a  c interface for dzgemm  for the early one.

Regards,

Ying
