std::accumulate expects a binary function f, with the first arg being
the state. In your example, that is the double you passed initially
with value 0.0. This is your "accumulator". The second arg (arg2) is
the reference to the element in your stl container (a reference to a

See spirit/phoenix/test/algorithm for some examples. For example:

     void accumulate_test()
         using namespace boost::phoenix;
         using namespace boost::phoenix::arg_names;
         int array[] = {1,2,3};
         BOOST_TEST(accumulate(arg1, 0)(array) == 6);
             arg1, 0, std::minus<int>())(array) == -6);
