Purpose

There have been many ideas for improving the prelude's support for mathematics. Including the addition of algebraic classes. But the discussion is spread over years of list archives and a half dozen websites. And the discussion has never gelled.

This page is intended to collect links to past discussion, and to provide a focal point for advancing the discussion.

Discussion

For me that probably starts with the semigroup/group/ring setup, and good arbitrary-precision as well as approximate linear algebra support.

I agree: semigoups like lattices are everywhere. Then there could be a uniform treatment of linear algebra, polynomial equations, operator algebra, etc.

MAGMA is an example of a language which embraced mathematical structure. MitchellNCharity 23:16, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
