Bug#812562: ITP: jscience -- Java science library (algebra, matrices, physical models)

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Wookey <wookey@wookware.org>

* Package name    : jscience
  Version         : 4.3.1
  Upstream Author : 2007 JScience (http://jscience.org/)
* URL             : http://jscience.org/
* License         : JScience
  Programming Lang: Java
  Description     : Java science library (algebra, matrices, physical models)

 JScience library provides a comprehensive Java library for the
 scientific community. It contains the following modules:
 * Units of Measurement services.
 * A coordinates module compliant with OGC/ISO specifications
   for the development and deployment of geographic applications.
 * A rigourous mapping of mathematical structures (e.g. Group,
   Ring, Field, VectorSpace ) to Java interfaces.
 * A linear algebra module, which includes a first parameterized
   matrix class capable of resolving linear system of equations
   involving any kind of elements.
 * A functions module for symbolic calculations and analysis.
 * Support for exact or arbitrary precision measurements
 * Support for Standard, Relativistic, High-Energy, Quantum and
   Natural physical models.
 * A monetary module for precision-guaranteed calculations and
   currencies conversions.

I am packaging this because it is needed by the current release of
caveconverter for calculating hulls. And it seems like quite a
generally useful java package. 

This package depends recursively(!) on geoapi (http://www.geoapi.org/
). Presumably that recursiveness is not a good enough reason to just
put geoapi in the same source package, and build them together, so I
should file an ITP for that too (and ideally put in staged builds so
they can easily be built)?

There was #555524 filed about this in 2009, and closed in 2011.
