## 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 Links to proposals and discussion

### 2.1 Numeric prelude

### 2.2 Basic Algebra Library (BAL)

## 3 Todo

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

## 4 Discussion

MAGMA is an example of a language which embraced mathematical structure.
