This month in rustsim #5 (March 2019): full complex numbers support for nalgebra

#1

Hello everyone!

I’m thrilled to announce the fifth issue of “This month in rustsim” which gives an overview about what happened within the rustsim github organization during last month. You will find the March blog post there: https://www.rustsim.org/blog/2019/04/01/this-month-in-rustsim/.

tldr : the month of March was mostly about completing the support of complex numbers within nalgebra. This includes:

  • BLAS operators specific to complex numbers because they include conjugation.
  • The adaptation of all the existing operations on real matrices/vectors so they work on complex matrices/vectors too. This includes matrix decompositions like Cholesky, LU, QR, SVD, Symmetric (Hermitian) Eigensystems, etc.

Thank you all for your feedbacks and support!
