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.

The Secret Structure of Great Talks
How to present effectively a new idea and make the audience believe in it is the topic of this TED talk by Nancy Duarte:
