My first (and probably only, as it is not my area) comment is that it
shouldn't just be called 'The Math Toolkit". 'Math' is much much too
big to fit into a single toolkit. This toolkit seems to be geared
towards statistics, so should be labeled as such. I see the directory
is called 'Math - Numerics', so maybe that label should be used
throughout (including header files, namespaces, etc).
