High level programming languages offer many benefits in terms of ease of use, encapsulation etc. However, they historically suffer from poor performance. In this paper we investigate improving the performance of a numerical code written in a highlevel language by using crosscomponent optimisation. We compare the results with traditional approaches such as the use of high performance libraries or Fortran. We demonstrate that our crosscomponent optimisation is highly effective, with a speedup of up to 1.43 over a program augmented with calls to the ATLAS BLAS library, and 1.5 over a pure Fortran equivalent.
