Armadillo is a template C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating point and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided via an optional integration with LAPACK, or one of its high performance drop-in replacements (e.g. AMD's ACML or Intel's MKL).

A delayed evaluation approach is employed (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce (or eliminate) the need for temporaries. This is accomplished through recursive templates and template meta-programming.

This library is useful if C++ has been decided as the language of choice (due to speed and/or integration capabilities), rather than another language like Matlab or Octave. It is distributed under a license that is useful in both open-source and commercial contexts.

Changes to previous version:
  • Added interpretation of arbitrary "flat" subcubes as matrices
  • Added floor() and ceil()
  • Faster min(), max(), mean(), sort(), prod()
  • Faster solve() for compound expressions
  • Fixed size matrices and vectors can use auxiliary (external) memory
  • Bugfix for compilation using GCC's C++0x mode
  • Bugfix for matrix handling by subcubes
  • Bugfix for a corner case with NaNs in min() and max()
  • Updated installation to detect recent versions of Intel's MKL
