Abstract algebra for Rust

alga − abstract algebra for Rust

alga aim to provide solid mathematical abstractions to algebra-focused applications. It defines and organize through trait inheritance the basic building blocks of general algebraic structures. Specific implementation of algebraic structure traits is is left to other crates. Higher-level traits for specilazied domain of algebra (like linear algebra) are also provided and will prove useful for applications that include code that is generic wrt. the algebraic entity types.

Examples of types that could derive from traits defined in alga:

  • Integers, reals and rationals numbers
  • Complex numbers
  • Polynomials
  • Matrices and vectors
  • Quaternions and octonians
  • Strings under concatenation

alga started as a fork of algebra.
