Many thanks for the hints! I've already tried the alpha version Eigen
3.3 and it looks very promising, in particular the TensorFixedSize
class template. If it is ok for you, I'll give you some feedback when
we start making use of it.

Many thanks for this! I'd propose the following descriptive line:
"FlexibleSUSY, a spectrum generator which calculates the masses of
It would be great if you could link to
Many thanks and best regards
