What is the current status of all Boost mathmatical,
statistical and econometric libraries currently in

The collection of boost math libraries that are
currently included in the library are world-class and
provide a wonderful foundation to build-upon.

However, many areas of advanced statistical and
mathmatical inference are not currently being
addressed by any of the boost libraries.

Is there currently a way for those boost developers
with a background in mathmatics to coordinate their
efforts. If not, why not? Lets get such a discussion

A continued and regular dialog of mathmatics as it
relates to boost library development would be of great
use, primaryily to avoid overaping our efforts.

If your a mathmetician and agree with me that boost is
a great foundation to build-upon, let the group/me

Points for Discussion:

1) We should keep a seperate list of boost::math
libraries that are currently under development and
provide a forum for advanced discussions. How can we
do this?

2) We need a way to attract the best mathmaticians in
the world. How can we make the boost libraries an even
more attractive development platform for the

3) We should create a list of mathmatical algorithims
and libraries that are needed.

4) We need some very basic boost specific
math-tutorials for our future mathemiticans and
potential library writers.

5) We need to advertise to the development community
about how strong of a foundation boost is for
mathmatical library development.

In short, lets tell the world that this is the
premiere place for advanced mathmatical library
development, as I believe that it could be.
