Sorry for the late reply,

Following the idea of a library geared for real-time operation the
library would be focused on dense matrices, supporting all standard
arithmetic operations for both vector and matrix as well as between
them, common vector operations (dot, length, lengthsq, norm, cross,
projection, etc...), common matrix operations (transposition,
determinant, adjoint, inverse, etc) as well as interoperability with
the quaternion library. If need be, this list could be expanded.
