Changes since 1.1: +1 -8
Edited DESCR in the case of:
File too long (should be no more than 24 lines).
Line too long (should be no more than 80 characters).
Trailing empty lines.
Trucated the long files as best as possible while preserving the most info
contained in them.
Eigen 3 is a C++ template library for linear algebra: vectors, matrices, and
related algorithms. It is:
* Versatile. Eigen handles, without code duplication, and in a completely
o both fixed-size and dynamic-size matrices and vectors.
o both dense and sparse (the latter is still experimental) matrices and
o both plain matrices/vectors and abstract expressions.
o both column-major (the default) and row-major matrix storage.
o both basic matrix/vector manipulation and many more advanced, specialized
modules providing algorithms for linear algebra, geometry, quaternions,
or advanced array manipulation.
o Expression templates allow to intelligently remove temporaries and enable
lazy evaluation, when that is appropriate -- Eigen takes care of this
automatically and handles aliasing too in most cases.
o Explicit vectorization is performed for the SSE (2 and later) and AltiVec
instruction sets, with graceful fallback to non-vectorized code.
Expression templates allow to perform these optimizations globally for
o With fixed-size objects, dynamic memory allocation is avoided, and the
loops are unrolled when that makes sense.
o For large matrices, special attention is paid to cache-friendliness.
