Expression Templates Revisited: A Performance Analysis of Current Methodologies

  title={Expression Templates Revisited: A Performance Analysis of Current Methodologies},
  author={Klaus Iglberger and Georg Hager and Jan Treibig and Ulrich R{\"u}de},
  journal={SIAM J. Scientific Computing},
In the last decade, Expression Templates (ET) have gained a reputation as an efficient performance optimization tool for C++ codes. This reputation builds on several ET-based linear algebra frameworks focused on combining both elegant and high-performance C++ code. However, on closer examination the assumption that ETs are a performance optimization technique cannot be maintained. In this paper we demonstrate and explain the inability of current ET-based frameworks to deliver high performance… CONTINUE READING
