Description Cyrille Berger 2010-10-14 13:32:59 UTC
Currently Eigen has a good dense full matrix. But there are other types (like symmetric requested in bug 42, or triangular, or diagonal...). While I would be willing to contribute the symmetric one, I would appreciate to have a documentation telling what is needed to create a matrix class, what must be implemented (ie operators), and what class to derive from, etc...

I can serve as a tester of that documentation.
