# Boost 1.46.1 Library Documentation - Math and numerics

Sort by:

## By Category

### Containers

- Multi-Array: Boost.MultiArray provides a generic N-dimensional array concept definition and common implementations of that interface.

### Iterators

- Operators: Templates ease arithmetic classes and iterators.

### Generic Programming

- Operators: Templates ease arithmetic classes and iterators.

### Math and numerics

- Accumulators: Framework for incremental calculation, and collection of statistical accumulators.
- Integer: The organization of boost integer headers and classes is designed to take advantage of <stdint.h> types from the 1999 C standard without resorting to undefined behavior in terms of the 1998 C++ standard. The header <boost/cstdint.hpp> makes the standard integer types safely available in namespace boost without placing any names in namespace std.
- Interval: Extends the usual arithmetic functions to mathematical intervals.
- Math: Boost.Math includes several contributions in the domain of mathematics: The Greatest Common Divisor and Least Common Multiple library provides run-time and compile-time evaluation of the greatest common divisor (GCD) or least common multiple (LCM) of two integers. The Special Functions library currently provides eight templated special functions, in namespace boost. The Complex Number Inverse Trigonometric Functions are the inverses of trigonometric functions currently present in the C++ standard. Quaternions are a relative of complex numbers often used to parameterise rotations in three dimentional space. Octonions, like quaternions, are a relative of complex numbers.
- Math Common Factor: Greatest common divisor and least common multiple.
- Math Octonion: Octonions.
- Math Quaternion: Quaternions.
- Math/Special Functions: A wide selection of mathematical special functions.
- Math/Statistical Distributions: A wide selection of univariate statistical distributions and functions that operate on them.
- Multi-Array: Boost.MultiArray provides a generic N-dimensional array concept definition and common implementations of that interface.
- Numeric Conversion: Optimized Policy-based Numeric Conversions.
- Operators: Templates ease arithmetic classes and iterators.
- Random: A complete system for random number generation.
- Rational: A rational number class.
- uBLAS: uBLAS provides matrix and vector classes as well as basic linear algebra routines. Several dense, packed and sparse storage schemes are supported.
