Subject: speeding up matrix multiplication (newbie question)
Hello Ocaml community---


I'm working on speeding up some code, and I wanted to check with
someone before implementation.

As you can see below, the code primarily spends its time multiplying relatively
small matrices. Precision is of course important but not an incredibly crucial
issue, as the most important thing is relative comparison between things which
*should* be pretty different. Currently I'm just using native
(double-precision) ocaml floats and the native ocaml arrays for a first pass on
the problem.

Now I'm thinking about moving to using float32 bigarrays, and I'm hoping that
the code will double in speed. I'd like to know: is that realistic? Any other
suggestions?


Thank you,

Erick
