A discussion group about C++MPP - going from sequential to parallel through polymorphism. The first topic starts: "Should the matrix class understand eigen systems? I don't think that it should. Have a separate class that is called eigensystem, that takes a matrix as an input. Matrix inversion is similar. Then you can have a sequential eigen system, parallel eigensytem all inheriting from the abstract base class."
A discussion group on LO and whether it works. It deals with questions such as: If you are negotiating a contract for a project either internally or externally, how do you design that contract to make learning a core value of the contract? If we are serious about learning, how do we structure it into our proposals for projects?
