I am Siddharth, a Computer science student from IIT Guwahati. After doing a
bit of research over the project ideas, I have found the idea of further
developing boost.ublas library interesting and so I have written the
competency code. Here is the link to the code:
I have done a basic course on Linear algebra and Discrete Mathematics, so
such a project suits my needs.
I need a little help for proceeding further.
1. how is the error handling done in boost library. I am using assert for
error handeling (but it does not sem the right way to me), the gaussian
elimination doesn't work on singular matrices. So, I would like to set the
errno and display apt message to the user when a singular matrix is the
2. Is there any predefined format for testing codes in boost library. I
have done manual testing. Sorry, I am not familiar with most of the code in
Any further helpful resources are welcome.
p.s. I have started writing the proposal for the project and I'll soon
draft it for review.
