In his work with IBM CAS, Professor Christopher Anand exemplifies
the mission of CAS Research. Professor Anand has been associated with CAS
since 2005, with seven CAS projects and has a productive record of research
in the IBM strategic areas of high-performance mathematical libraries, languages/compilers,
and processor architecture. He has developed algorithms and implementations
for six IBM mathematical library products: Cell/B.E. MASS, POWER7 and POWER8
MASS, Blue Gene/Q MASS, z13 MASS, and z13 ATLAS, providing world-class performance.
In particular, z13 MASS and ATLAS were explicitly featured in the New York

instruction proposals into the POWER10/11 hardware architecture discussions,
and helped IBM team tune POWER9 MASS.
