= Welcome to LYLA - a matrix and linear algebra library for D =
== Description ==
LYLA is a matrix and linear algebra library for large scale matrices. It's in an early alpha-state and supports now rectangular dense and sparse matrices and dense and sparse vectors.
LYLA may be used in conjunction with the well known BLAS library. In this case the arithmetic for dense rectangular matrices and vectors is done by the fast routines of BLAS.
== Current Release ==
[http://www.dsource.org/projects/lyla/attachment/wiki/WikiStart/lyla-d-0.2.tar.bz2 Lyla 0.2]
== Repository ==
LYLA uses the [http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/ Mercurial] version control system. You can [http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~fifr/repos/lyla-d browse] the repository or check it out with the following command
{{{ hg clone http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~fifr/repos/lyla-d}}}
Update your repository with new patches by
{{{ hg pull -u}}}
Send patches to [mailto:frank.fischer@s2001.tu-chemnitz.de frank.fischer@s2001.tu-chemnitz.de].
== Documentation ==
For a brief introduction to LYLA look at the [wiki:QuickStart quick start].
A more detailed documentation can be found in the [wiki:RefDoc reference documentation].
For any comments, bugs and suggestions, send me an [mailto:frank.fischer@s2001.tu-chemnitz.de eMail]
== Further development directions ==
The following aspects may be available in future versions of LYLA, if there's any need for them
* symmetric matrices
* band matrices, tridiagonal, ...
* improve BLAS support
* (optional) LAPACK support
* (optional) GSL support
* ... any other idea?
If you require some of these suggested functionalities, let me know.
The following will likely '''never''' be part of LYLA (except someone convinces me of the usefulness):
* expression templates (stuff like boost's ublas).
