Abstract Physical Units



type T i = Map i Int Source #

A Unit.T is a sparse vector with integer entries Each map n->m means that the unit of the n-th dimension is given m times.

Example: Let the quantity of length (meter, m) be the zeroth dimension and let the quantity of time (second, s) be the first dimension, then the composed unit m/s^2 corresponds to the Map [(0,1),(1,-2)].

In future I want to have more abstraction here, e.g. a type class from the Edison project that abstracts from the underlying implementation. Then one can easily switch between Arrays, Binary trees (like Map) and what know I.

scalar :: T i Source #

The neutral Unit.T

isScalar :: T i -> Bool Source #

Test for the neutral Unit.T

fromVector :: (Enum i, Ord i) => [Int] -> T i Source #

Convert a List to sparse Map representation Example: [-1,0,-2] -> [(0,-1),(2,-2)]

toVector :: (Enum i, Ord i) => T i -> [Int] Source #

Convert Map to a List

ratScale :: T Int -> T i -> T i Source #

ratScaleMaybe :: T Int -> T i -> Maybe (T i) Source #
