This paper proposes an API for Batched Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (Batched BLAS). We focus on many independent BLAS operations on small matrices that are grouped together as a single routine, called Batched BLAS routine, with the aim of providing more efficient, but portable, implementations of algorithms on high-performance manycore architectures (like multi/manycore CPU processors, GPUs, and coprocessors).
