Morton Ordering on the Intel Xeon Phi

The Morton order is a mapping of multidimensional data to one dimension that preserves locality of the data. This is also known as Z-order. “By using Morton ordering as an alternative to row-major or column-major data storage, significant speedups can be achieved on the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor or Intel Xeon CPU when performing matrix multiplies or matrix transposes.”
