    Interesting in that same document is that User Interrupts chapter has been removed.

    There is now an RAO chapter in its place.

    Are User Interrupts somehow being merged into Remote Atomic Operations? as in 11.8.2?

    The only language (high-level, non-scripted) I know that have a first class support for Complex numbers is Fortran, where FP16 was only introduced recently by some compilers. (supporting Complex is optional in C11. Working with C++ complex doesn't feel native).

    Maybe some other people use them for other purposes, who knows?
    Oh but nevermind, you are right, they only support float and double. For some reason I thought fp16 was in there too.

    "Operations involving complex numbers in PyTorch are optimized to use vectorized assembly instructions and specialized kernels (e.g. LAPACK, cuBlas)."
