* Package name    : libmath-matrixreal-perl
  Version         : 2.13

  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Manipulate NxN matrices of real numbers

It implements the data type "matrix of reals" (and consequently also "vector
of reals") which can be used almost like any other basic Perl type thanks to
operator overloading.

It features many important operations and methods: matrix norm, matrix
transposition, matrix inverse, determinant of a matrix, order and numerical
condition of a matrix, scalar product of vectors, vector product of vectors,
vector length, projection of row and column vectors, a comfortable way for
reading in a matrix from a file, the keyboard or your code, and many more.

It allows one to solve linear equation systems using an efficient algorithm
known as "L-R-decomposition" and several approximative (iterative) methods.

It features an implementation of Kleene's algorithm to compute the minimal
costs for all paths in a graph with weighted edges (the "weights" being the
costs associated with each edge).

Finally, it allows one to solve the eigensystem of a real symmetric matrix,
using Householder transformation and QL decomposition.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.

Generated with the help of dpt-gen-itp(1) from pkg-perl-tools.

This package is a dependency of libstatistics-pca-perl, which in
turn will become a dependency of prinseq-lite, to enable the
possibility of using the full prinseq-graphs.pl command without
having to skip PCA graphs.  The repository is available on
