libpetey is a small scientific/numerical computation library. It includes the following components: templated sorting routines; templated binary tree classes; a templated linked-list class; routines for finding the k-least and k-greatest elements in an array; "supernewton", a one-dimensional root-finding algorithm based on cubic interpolation; a class for working with dates and times; a function for easy parsing of command line options; datasets (the beginnings of a data-representation paradigm that generalizes matrices but is mainly useful for n-dimensional linear interpolation); and sparse matrix library including command-line utilities for sparse matrix multiplication and eigenvalue decomposition as well as a sparse matrix calculator.
