Subject Re: [math] Re: commons-math, matrix-toolkits-java and consolidation

Just to let you know, I've contacted the author of this blog post... who has
recently written a library called jblas. I've asked him if he wants to be
involved with the initiative here, to consolidate efforts for Java Linear
Algebra packages.

Incidentally... this blog post references a very pervasive, yet abandoned,
project named Colt. Colt was a brilliant library in its day (now numerically
challenged), although riddled with license issues (depending on
non-commercial and ill-defined not-for-military-use middleware). Colt is a
reminder of what can happen when a great library is written but not
maintained. There might be lessons to learn from their API... I know some
projects that use it.

It might be worthwhile contacting other Java Linear Algebra package authors,
such as JAMA. JAMA is a very small library in comparison (no additional
functionality over MTJ or commons-math)... but they might have a different
take on APIs than we would have.
