Porting and optimizing the SciMark2 benchmark

The OCaml Journal just published an article about the SciMark2 benchmark:

"The SciMark2 benchmark is a suite of numerical algorithms that were originally collated into a benchmark for scientific computing on the Java platform. Porting this benchmark to OCaml provides an excellent tutorial on the implementation of efficient numerical algorithms using the current OCaml implementation. The results illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of the current OCaml implementation in terms of performance..."
