Michael, thanks for the links.
As for me, this page also has interesting info(and this page
give me idea to provide math functions).

Yes, of course, boost community should choose the default notation.

What is the best way to provide several notations?

That is less important issue, but I have question about the file structure.
In the prototype all code in one file. But I think file structure may look
like this:
fixed_point.hpp - top level header

I do not insist, but I think segregation better than one file,
and want to know your opinion.

P.S. The proposal.
I think this is final version, or close to final.
