This module enables the use of the Intel Math Kernel Libraries (MKL)

Intel Math Kernel Library (Intel MKL) is a computing math library of highly optimized, extensively threaded math routines for applications that require maximum performance. Core math functions include BLAS, LAPACK, ScaLAPACK1, sparse solvers, fast Fourier transforms, vector math, and more.

Offering performance optimizations for current and next-generation Intel processors, it includes improved integration with Microsoft Visual Studio*, Eclipse*, and XCode*. The Intel> MKL computing math library allows for full integration of the Intel Compatibility OpenMP* runtime library for greater Windows*/Linux* cross-platform compatibility.

The specific syntax required for linking against MKL depends on the desired threading and ILP settings. For more information, consult" the Intel Link advisor at:
