I took a quick look at the docs and I have to ask, "Why?" Why would I want to use your library? There is no motivation section and nothing to explain it's value. You just assume everyone knows about its purpose and value.

I don't know anything about quarternions, for example. Does QVM relate to specific fields with which I'm not acquainted thereby making the library of no use to me? How are your vectors related to std::vector? How are your matrices related to those in uBLAS? Such are the questions you should address, don't you think?
