# Linear algebra

### From HaskellWiki

Many people associate Numerical Linear Algebra with software packages like MatLab, SciLab, Octave and similar packages. But being a functional language Haskell should be an even better choice for doing mathematics. So is there some support for linear algebra? It follows a list of discussions about this topic and references to packages.
