I think Golub and Van Loan is a good point to get
going, though the field itself is vast. Also, take a
look at Fortran 90:s array syntax and how it is
compiled. (Matlab is probably similar.)

By the way, I also think it's quite feasible to
compile a suitable Erlang-like sublanguage (with
aligned binaries) into native-speed, native-space C
code, including the use of SIMD/vector intrinsics.

(Integration with the regular Erlang VM is another
issue :-)


You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
