If the docs are intended to be eventually merged with the existing
Boost.Math docs then it'll have to be quickbook:
http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_37_0/doc/html/quickbook.html . Once you get
the hang of the markup language used it's actually very simple, the only
issue is that you can't embed equations directly in the text like you can
with say LaTex, there's some info on how I handled equations here:
http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_37_0/libs/math/doc/sf_and_dist/html/math_toolkit/backgrounders/implementation.html#math_toolkit.backgrounders.implementation.creating_and_managing_the_equations
but maybe you can get by without any to begin with?
HTH, John.
