 Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS)
The Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) library is a specification that prescribes a set of low-level routines for performing common linear algebra operations such as vector addition, scalar multiplication, dot products, linear combinations, and matrix multiplication. Many numerical software applications use BLAS-compatible libraries to do linear algebra computations, including Armadillo, LAPACK, LINPACK, GNU Octave, Mathematica, MATLAB, NumPy, R, and Julia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_Lin ... ubprograms

 Humidity and Heat Index
For equal air temperature, more water vapor in the air will lead to less evaporative cooling on the skin surface, and the hotter we feel. Hence why air at a temperature of 49C and 0% relative humidity is not more uncomfortable than air at a temperature of 29C and 100% humidity. https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/heat ... _1505.html
