numeric-prelude-0.4.0.3: An experimental alternative hierarchy of numeric type classes

Synopsis

Class

class C a whereSource

Additive a encapsulates the notion of a commutative group, specified by the following laws:

a + b === b + a
(a + b) + c === a + (b + c)
zero + a === a
a + negate a === 0

Typical examples include integers, dollars, and vectors.

Minimal definition: +, zero, and (negate or '(-)')

Methods

zero :: aSource

zero element of the vector space

(+), (-) :: a -> a -> aSource

negate :: a -> aSource

inverse with respect to +

subtract :: C a => a -> a -> aSource

subtract is (-) with swapped operand order. This is the operand order which will be needed in most cases of partial application.

Complex functions

sum :: C a => [a] -> aSource

Sum up all elements of a list. An empty list yields zero.

This function is inappropriate for number types like Peano. Maybe we should make sum a method of Additive. This would also make lengthLeft and lengthRight superfluous.

sum1 :: C a => [a] -> aSource

Sum up all elements of a non-empty list. This avoids including a zero which is useful for types where no universal zero is available.

sumNestedAssociative :: C a => [a] -> aSource

Sum the operands in an order, such that the dependencies are minimized. Does this have a measurably effect on speed?

Requires associativity.

sumNestedCommutative :: C a => [a] -> aSource

Instance definition helpers

elementAdd :: C x => (v -> x) -> T (v, v) xSource

Instead of baking the add operation into the element function, we could use higher rank types and pass a generic uncurry (+) to the run function. We do not do so in order to stay Haskell 98 at least for parts of NumericPrelude.

elementSub :: C x => (v -> x) -> T (v, v) xSource

elementNeg :: C x => (v -> x) -> T v xSource

(<*>.+) :: C x => T (v, v) (x -> a) -> (v -> x) -> T (v, v) aSource

addPair = Elem.run2 \$ Elem.with (,) <*>.+  fst <*>.+  snd

(<*>.-) :: C x => T (v, v) (x -> a) -> (v -> x) -> T (v, v) aSource

(<*>.-\$) :: C x => T v (x -> a) -> (v -> x) -> T v aSource
