N2 - This paper discusses accurate numerical algorithms for matrix multiplication. Matrix multiplication is a basic and important problem in numerical linear algebra. Numerical computations using floating-point arithmetic can be quickly performed on existing computers. However, the accumulation of rounding errors due to finite precision arithmetic is a critical problem. An error-free transformation for matrix multiplication is reviewed in this paper. Such a transformation is extremely useful for developing accurate numerical algorithms for matrix multiplication. One advantage of the transformation is that it exploits Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS). We provide a rounding error analysis of reproducible algorithms for matrix multiplication based on the error-free transformation. In addition, we propose an error-free transformation for matrix multiplication that can be utilized with the divide and conquer methods.
