No, because inner_prod is simply sum(a(i)*b(i)). You should use
inner_prod(conj(a),b) for complex types.

A good qr-implementation would definitely be a welcome add on to this
library. You can use my cholesky decomposition and the triangular
solvers as a starting point, see .

This depends on your time and skills ;-)
There are a lot of open issues. In general all contributions are
welcome - preferably they are self contained and fit to the boost
coding conventions. Currently the handling of structured (complex)
matrices is very limited and could be extended.


PS: ublas needs some performance tweaks - however this is very
complicated and would require a redesign of large parts ...
