# AMD Core Math Library

**AMD Core Math Library** (**ACML**) is an end-of-life ^{[1]} software development library released by AMD. This library provides mathematical routines optimized for AMD processors.

## FeaturesEdit

ACML consists of the following main components:^{[2]}

- A full implementation of Level 1, 2 and 3 Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS), with optimizations for AMD Opteron processors.
- A full suite of Linear Algebra (LAPACK) routines.
- A comprehensive suite of Fast Fourier transform (FFTs) in single-, double-, single-complex and double-complex data types.
- Fast scalar, vector, and array math transcendental library routines
- Random Number Generators in both single- and double-precision

## Supported platformsEdit

AMD offers pre-compiled binaries for Linux, Solaris, and Windows available for download. Supported compilers include GNU Fortran, Intel Fortran Compiler, Microsoft Visual Studio, NAG, PathScale, PGI compiler, and Sun Studio.^{[3]}
