What about Eigen / Armadillo / XTensor?¶
These are numerical libraries, they require explicit formulation of equations, and due to the finite representation of digits on computers, they are prone to numerical errors.
How do I convert my Eigen / Armadillo / Xtensor code?¶
There should not be any need to do so. If a symbolic library is required it should be clear at the ideation phase. If inheriting legacy code which needs to be converted, it should be done in terms of the underlying C++ data structures.
