Boost :

I am working on a new library. It is a computational framework where the
computations follow the following pattern:
 Users build a computational object by selecting the computations
they are interested in (or author their own computational primimtives
which fit within the framework).
 Users push data into the object one sample at a time
 The object computes the requested quantities in the most
efficient method possible (resolving dependencies between
requested calculations, cacheing intermediate results, etc.)
 The object may or may not be stateful.
What should such a library be called? Is there an accepted term for such
a computational model?
