I've started to take a closer look at the ublas library.
First of all, I'm quite impressed by sources, which are
very readable. However, I'm currently only at the lowest
level of understanding ublas.
I have the the following questions / comments concerning
the hermitean matrices:
-> Is it correct, that the diagonal elements are of the
same type as the off-diagonal elements, or have I missed
I'd prefer the diagonal elements of a complex hermitean
matrix to be real. Or at least to have a function
returning the diagonal elements as real values.
-> In the same spirit one should not be allowed to
multiply a complex hermitean matrix with a non-real
scalar, or at least this shouldn't return a hermitean matrix.
-> Shouldn't hermitean matrices be square matrices ?
-> Suppose I want to implement a banded hermitean matrix.
What do I need besides corresponding functors ?
