1 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.
