PLAPACK provides two more levels of level-3 BLAS: the local level-3 BLAS and the global level-3 BLAS, with identical parameter sequences. For the general matrix-matrix multiply, the calling sequences are given by place HR here

Parameters `TRANSA` and `TRANSB` have been replaced by
integers `transa` and `transb`, which can take on
the values indicated in Table .
All other parameters are now passed as part of linear algebra
objects `alpha`, `a`, `b`, `beta`, and `c`.

When a node calls `PLA_Local_gemm`, the operation
is equivalent to
extracting the local information (datatype, dimensions, and pointer to the
buffer) and locally performing the general matrix-matrix multiply.
The local dimensions of `alpha` and `beta` must be ,
but they can be of any object type.
The local dimensions of `a`, `b`, and `c` must be such
that the operation is well-defined. All objects must have the same datatype.
To best understand the operation
of this call, see the sample implementation given in Figure .

Notice: no communication is performed as part of this call. Thus, all information must be locally available.

All nodes must simultaneously call `PLA_Gemm`, which performs
the BLAS call on the distributed objects.
Parameters `transa` and `transb` still have the same
meaning. Parameters `alpha` and `beta` must now
be multiscalars. Parameters `a`, `b`, and `c`
must all be of object type matrix.
The global dimensions of the different objects must be such
that the operation is well-defined.
