Good point.

To answer briefly, both MTL and (Boost) LA define generic algorithms
to work with matrices and vectors, but MTL is perhaps more similar to
BLAS/uBLAS/cuBLAS in terms of problem domain.

Boost multi_array is relevant as it is trivial to define matrix_traits
specialization that allows (Boost) LA to treat it as a matrix.
