Very nice!

I find those algorithms could make it into uBlas like "extensions", yourself and maintainers permitting of course. It could save a lot of people the time to reinvent them or the need to bind to external libraries. What do all think?

I use my custom algorithms in some cases, and I was looking into reimplementing JAMA, but never had the time. Nice work Fredric.

> * What is ublasJama?
>
> ublasJama is translation of the public domain Jama (Java Matrix Package) to C++ using boost.ublas for the linear algebra. Jama itself is a Java implementation of algorithms for dense matrices found in LINPACK and EISPACK.

> Author of the ublas translation: Frederic Devernay .
>
> Documentation: see the Jama documentation.
>
> Original Authors: see the Jama list of authors.

> No optimization of the original code was done, but the functionality is here:
>
> Cholesky Decomposition of symmetric, positive definite matrices
> LU Decomposition (Gaussian elimination) of rectangular matrices
> QR Decomposition of rectangular matrices
> Eigenvalue Decomposition of both symmetric and nonsymmetric square matrices
> Singular Value Decomposition of rectangular matrices
> There are two test programs:
>
> TestMatrix, in subdirectory test - the original Jama tests, where only the relevant tests were kept.
> MagicSquareExample, in subdirectory examples
