## 1 Purpose

There have been many ideas for improving the prelude's support for mathematics. Including the addition of algebraic classes. But the discussion is spread over years of list archives and a half dozen websites. And the discussion has never gelled.

This page is intended to collect links to past discussion, and to provide a focal point for advancing the discussion.

## 2 Todo

- Flesh out list of proposals. First from Libraries_and_tools/Mathematics.
- Add links to discussions in list archive, and elsewhere.

## 3 Libraries and proposals

### 3.1 Numeric prelude

### 3.2 Basic Algebra Library (BAL)

- Is not in community report 2006-06.
- 0.04/announce.txt (2006-02)
- www.botik.ru/pub/local/Mechveliani/basAlgPropos/
- Formerly refered to as "basic algebra proposal".

### 3.3 See Also

- Libraries_and_tools/Mathematics
- Numeric classes on the Haskell' wiki
