Re: [eigen] Contributing to Eigen - best place to start?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Former physicist by training, so I used to do a lot of stuff with matrix decomposition, and things such as least-squares solvers.. Nowadays I write a lot of template-based vector math routines (hence the interest in Eigen), but I figure if I want to contribute it might be best if I just go on a bit of a deeper tour of Eigen than present and see how some of the bits I've not looked into yet work, and if they aren't documented or have TODO:doc by them maybe write a few comments - are you interested in doc patches to start with?

You can start with what is (or may become) most important for you (and you feel capable of solving).

This is the most important, especially to get started! Since Eigen involves many very different skills, you could give us a few keywords defining what you would find fun to work on, and then we could make some more precise suggestions. Some keyword examples: multi-threading, dense matrix decompositions, sparse-decomposition, SIMD, numerical accuracy, performance, tuning for 2D/3D apps, template meta programming, ARM, doc, cmake, c++11, STL, etc.
