Dear all,

I'm currently starting a new number crunching project in the field
of low temperature condensed matter physics. In this project I'm forced
to use a highly sophisticated matrix package to achieve a high performing
implementation. After reading through the documentation of various packages
(MTL, Blitz++, POOMA, ATLAS, ... ) I'd prefer to use MTL, since it is more
than just a matrix package.
Since MTLv3 is supposed to be incorporated into Boost, I would be interested
in joining the development of MTLv3 (coding & testing) instead of developing
my own package.

What I need in addition to MTL are:

-> hermitean Matrices
-> (sparce) Matrices defined as a list of (dense) sub blocks
-> hermitean rank-2 update for matrices ( BLAS xHERK2)

Therefore I'd be interested in the current status of the Boost
matrix package. I have dowloaded the inital mtlv3 von the files
section, but that seems to be rather incomplete.
Is anyone currently working on the matrix packages ?
I have been reading the Boost mailing list for quite a while now
but I'm still puzzled on the status of the matrix packages.

Best wishes
and thanks in advance for all anwers
Peter Schmitteckert


P.S. Performance is critical for may application, since I'll have
to diagonalize repeatedly matrices of the order 10^6 .. 10^7.
