It has been discussed only superficially by this <https://groups.google.com/a/isocpp.org/forum/#!searchin/std-proposals/matrix/std-proposals/R9jeBjwJmKo/T-1RWPOvBAAJ> thread. "Superficially" because two-dimensional arrays/fields/tables are not what I'd like to ask feedback for in this thread. Has there been any proposal yet to bring the concept of mathematical matrices into discussion? With the approval of the mathematical special functions (Tech. Rep.), C++ has clearly stated, It wants to support mathematical computing. A support for matrices along (mathematical) vectors feel very natural in this sence. *Note: By "mathematical vectors" I refer to column or row vectors, which basically represent matrices of height or width 1.* If C++ wants to support matrix based computing, this would infer the following (incomplete and necessarily subjective) list of features: *Something lika a std::matrix class (-template)* Here two questions would be, 1. should the dimensions of a matrix instance compile-time constant or runtime variable? 2. in what way should a matrix behave like and be iterable lika a (2-dimensional (?)) container? *Basic Marix operator overloads* This includes a matrix-matrix operations as well as constant-matrix operations and unary matrix operations like transposition and conjugation. Note: An unary operator' for transposition would be nice to have. *Mathematical manipulations and information retrieveing on matrices* This includes operations like - computing the determinant, trace, eigenvectors and eigenvalues of a matrix, - swapping of rows and columns as well as deriving submatrices - detection of different attributes (symmetry, hermeticness, orthogonality, invertability). *Before people start discussing about potential features of such a class,* *I'd like to ask for* *- information about already present proposals or papers if any,* *- feedback on whether you think such an area shall be permeated by C++* Let me hear from you!

The=20 problem is that such types will generally be used in highly performance=20 sensitive environments, and everyone will have a different view of which=20 compromises they're willing to accept in the name of good performance. The= =20 danger is that this will lead to one of two scenarios: - Much bikeshedding in an attempt to optionally provide every feature=20 under the sun, leading to an overcomplicated "design by committee" that= =20 never gets anywhere, or - A "lowest common denominator" compromise that doesn't fully meet=20 anyone's needs and so goes mostly unused in real-world applications (lik= e=20 valarray) Just off the top of my head, some examples of the kind of questions which= =20 would need to be answered: - Presumably "small" types like vec4 or mat3x3 would be stack-allocated= =20 (like std::array) for performance, while larger matrices would be=20 heap-allocated (like std::vector). But how small is "small"? If we leave= =20 it implementation-defined, then it's likely people will stick to using= =20 custom libraries which offer known, fixed guarantees. - Should we allow row- and column-major ordering? If yes, the design=20 immediately gets more complicated (needing some sort of matrix_traits=20 policy class), but if not then anyone who needs to interface with Fortra= n=20 libraries (still heavily used today for numerical work) is out of luck - What about SIMD support? This would be hard to mandate in the context= =20 of the standard's abstract machine, but again if it's left=20 implementation-defined then people will instead use libraries where thes= e=20 guarantees are provided. - Should we only provide arrays of rank 1 or 2 (i.e. mathematical=20 vectors and matrices), or arrays of higher rank too (i.e. tensors)? In my opinion, rather than providing std::matrix etc *classes*, it would be= =20 more useful to standardise the interfaces by providing linear algebra=20 *concepts.* (These could be built on top of the interfaces provided by the= =20 Ranges TS.) That way, I can write an algorithm which works for any=20 (hypothetical) std::Matrix<float, 4, 4>, and it doesn't matter whether the= =20 user of my library is using GLM, or Eigen, or their own (existing) mat4f=20 from their game engine, or anything else. I have a feeling it would be very= =20 much easier to persuade the maintainers of large, mature LA libraries like= =20 Eigen to add standard interface methods to their classes (or provide=20 adaptors), rather than asking them to throw away their hard work and start= =20 using std::matrix or whatever instead. Later, once the concepts are in place, we could start talking about=20 defining a simple std::matrix (or whatever) implementation which could be= =20 used for simple applications or for prototyping.

That seems like a reasonable approach. I'll try to sit down and prototype a minimal set of Concepts to handle these interface specifications. Thanks for the quick response!
