Unit 12.3.1 Blocked Cholesky factorization

In the following video, we demonstrate how high-performance algorithms can be quickly translated to code using the FLAME abstractions. It is a long video that was recorded in a single sitting and has not been edited. (You need not watch the whole video if you "get the point.") The purpose is to convey the importance of programming in a way that reflects how one naturally derives and explains an algorithm. In the next unit, you will get to try such implementation yourself, for the LU factorization.
