Subject [jira] [Created] (MATH-707) Naming confusion
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2011 16:31:52 GMT
Naming confusion

                 Key: MATH-707
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Gilles
            Assignee: Gilles
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 3.0

This issue was raised in [this thread|] on the
"dev" ML.
It proposes to consistently name classes/interfaces that refer to number types (e.g. "Real",
"Complex", ...) and structure (e.g. "Scalar", "Vectorial", ...), with "Real" and "Scalar"
components in names being assumed (thus, not to be included in the name).

For example, for the "Univariate..." interfaces (in package "analysis"), the proposal is to
operate the following renaming:
* {{UnivariateRealFunction}} -> {{UnivariateFunction}}
* {{UnivariateRealVectorialFunction}} -> {{UnivariateVectorFunction}}
* {{UnivariateMatrixFunction}} -> {{UnivariateMatrixFunction}}

Similar changes are in order in the package "optimization" (where "Real" is sometimes included
in the name and sometimes not, or used instead of "Scalar").
