Subject: [boost] different matrix library?

hi
i'm new to boost so please don't blame me
the question is
do you need a matrix library which allows you to write clear, human
readable code like
dV = (1/m)*force + transpose(A)*g  cross_product(omega, V)
//here dV is a derivative of velocity, m is (scalar) mass
//A is transition matrix and
//g is gravity acceleration vector
//omega is angular velocity and V is velocity vector itself
//force is defined in body space (e.g. aerodynamics and thrust)
that is an expression of newton's 2nd law (or if you like
'change in momentum' law:
d(m*V)/dt = d_local(m*V)/dt + (omega)x(m*V) = sum_of(forces)
as you can see so far i'm a math nerd)
of course it must be implemented through lazy evaluation technique
(which immediately implies expression templates)
ps
i looked at uBLAS and the design seemed obsolete to me
so i thought there could be a better approach then blindly following
blas design
pps
thanks for reading til here and forgive for (possibly) wasting your
time
