I want to use this mailing list to announce a scientific software
project being developed at Vienna Technical University which makes use
of the Eigen library (2.0). Thank you very much for providing this
excellent piece of software and all the support during past development.
SLangTNG is an application suite which provides scientists, students
and engineers a tool for
* fast and simple linear algebra (like MATLAB(TM)/Mathematica(TM)/Maple(TM))
* dense and sparse matrices, solvers and decompositions
* random number generation
* advanced statistics
* numerical analysis
* structural mechanics using FEM
* data visualization
* scripting using the Lua interpreter language
* Mac OS X
The basic idea is to provide people with little programming skills a
scripting engine for their engineering/numerical simulation tasks.
Lua is a full featured and probably the most efficient scripting
language. The math kernel is based on KDE's Eigen library providing
superfast linear algebra and algorithms. The bindings are provided
automatically by SWIG (with custom bindings to make things
comfortable). All algorithms are organized in modules, i.e. small C++
libraries which may be separated from the main package. SLangTNG is
actually a large collection of C++ modules with common interface.
Executables are provided by custom driver apps. By default, a simple Qt
application and a batch mode app are provided.
