There are several projects currently underway in our lab
that involve generic programming in some way. The Matrix Template
Library is the first one to be released but as the other projects
make progress, they will be previewed here.
Iterative Template Library
The Iterative Template Library is a collection of
sophisticated iterative methods written in C++ (similar to the IML++
Library). It contains methods for solving both symmetric and
nonsymmetric linear systems of equations. The ITL uses the Matrix
Template Library interface for its basic linear algebra
operations. Since both the ITL and MTL interfaces are templated, the
algorithms can be used with any matrix and vector data structures that
fullfill the necessary requirements. This means that the ITL
algorithms can work with dense, sparse, and even distributed matrices.
Boost Graph Library
Boost Graph Library,
or BGL, is a general purpose,
generic C++ library for graph data structures and graph algorithms.
GGCL is developed under the same generic programming paradigm as that
in Boost Graph
Library, BGL algorithms and components are expressed on the
concepts of Graph, Vertex,
Edge, Decorator, and
