A Case for Source-Level Transformations in MATLAB
In this paper, we discuss various performance overheads in MATLAB codes and propose different program transformation strategies to overcome them. In particular, we demonstrate that high-level source-to-source transformations of MATLAB programs are effective in obtaining substantial performance gains regardless of whether programs are interpreted or later compiled into C or FORTRAN. We argue that automating such transformations provides a promising area of future research.
