Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUMBERS-98) Port commons-math.linear to commons-numbers.linear
Date Mon, 08 Apr 2019 01:33:00 GMT


Eric Barnhill commented on NUMBERS-98:

I do not have another take on it, and agree with Gilles. This proposal is as they say "short
on specifics". It is mostly just a rewrite of the ticket. But what is needed for the proposal
is a strategy for solving the problem the ticket describes. And this Ting's proposal does
not provide.

>             Project: Commons Numbers
>          Issue Type: Task
>            Reporter: Eric Barnhill

> Apache commons is one of the most widely used supplementary resources by Java programmers
and its mathematical functions are widely used. 
> Basic operations of linear algebra such as matrix factorization are not only in use in
scientific and technical fields but widely in industry, and an accessible and standalone library
for this functionality would have a wide potential audience.
> This ticket is in three parts:
>  # Port the libraries from commons-math.linear into commons-numbers.linear, removing
unnecessary layers of abstraction and creating a simple, intuitive, standalone library.
>  # The developer should familiarize themselves with best bractices in linear algebra
such as those in the EJML, and redevelop the linear library to contain best practice implementations.
>  # The developer should work with developers of other math and statistics projects to
integrate their work where it can benefit those projects.
