Generics became part of the .NET Framework in version 2.0. However, this did not
include the ability to use generic types in arithmetic expressions.
The Extreme Optimization Numerical Libraries for .NET
provides a framework for adding generic arithmetic.
The framework consists of two components: a set of interfaces that define
arithmetic operations, and a set of attributes that enable the use of specialized
implementations that are optimized for specific types.
Built on this foundation is a generic linear algebra library that includes
most of the functionality available
in the Vector and Matrix Library User's Guide.
