We describe an attempt to improve the performance of a sequential Fortran code on a shared memory multiprocessor. The only parallelism employed is that provided by a set of parallel BLAS. The code is modified to make maximum use of the BLAS and, in particular, to use an appropriate LAPACK routine. Comparisons are made with automatically generated parallel code.
