The Sperry ISP appears to be an attractive machine for implementing standard linear algebraic algorithms. It has similar characteristics to other vector-processing machines with an architecture based on vector-registers. Good performance of standard algorithms can be obtained via efficient implementations of matrix-vector operations, and we strongly recommend that these are added to the EML Library.
