Bug#521978: ITP: armadillo -- streamlined C++ linear algebra library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Kumar Appaiah <akumar@debian.org>

  Package name	     : armadillo
  Version 	     : 0.6.2
  Upstream Author    : Conrad Anderson (conradsand at ieee.org)
  URL	   	     : http://arma.sf.net
  License  	     : Dual Licensed, GPL-3+ and LGPL-3+
  Programming Lang   : C++

Description: streamlined C++ linear algebra library
 Armadillo is a streamlined C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths)
 aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer,
 floating point and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset
 of trigonometric and statistics functions. Optional integration with
 LAPACK and ATLAS libraries is also provided.

Extras: Reason for request for inclusion in Debian: The reason why I
think this package should be in Debian is because it is (to my
knowledge) among the only few libraries which support delayed
evaluation to improve computational efficiency. I believe that several
users who need scientific computation may derive benefit from this.

Another point of note is that, though it does seem to be the case that
this library provides similar functionality to IT++ (libitpp), they
actually compliment each other with non-overlapping feature sets, and
Armadillo can be used along with IT++.

Maintenance: I propose to include this package with the Debian Science
Team as maintainer, since co-maintaining is much more reliable when
I (as an individual) am not as responsive as I ought to be...

Comments and suggestions welcome.
