Take a look at the thread on "N-dimensional generic resizable array" and the
preliminary submission at Giovanni Bavestrelli
put this together for a CUJ article which prompted a long discussion of
requirements. It's been pretty quiet for awhile now....

> Would there be any interest in developing a multi-dimensional array
> (vector, matrix, ...) library at Boost ?
> The intent would be to have an easy to use interface and
> high-performance implementation for use in scientific applications or
> whereever multi-dimensional data structure need to be manipulated.
> Following features would at least have to be in there:
> _ templated value_type
> _ Expression Templates for performant and easy interface (e.g. `y = A *
> x + b` without tmp's)
> _ dense and sparse matrices
> _ support for slices / subarrays
> _ common linear algebra operations (addition, multiplication of
> matrices, ....)
> There are already some libraries doing all/some of the above but I'm
> sure that the boost development process and development approach is able
> to produce a next level of matrix libary with respect to quality,
> portability and functionality.
> This way, hopefully some kind of standard can be realised (you hear the
> whole time of new matrix libaries popping up, again and again) such that
> there's totally no excuse anymore (even for scientists) to stay with
> Fortran 77/90.
