Abstract
This paper describes a set of interfaces for numerical subroutines. Ty ping a short (often one-line) description allows one to solve problems in application domains including fitting, differential equations, min imization, root finding, and integration. Our approach of ''template-d riven programming'' makes it easy to build such an interface: a simple one takes a few hours to construct, while a few days suffice to build the most complex program we describe.
