Contributing to Math-Polynomial =============================== Thank you for your interest in contributing to this Perl 5 library. Currently, it is in active development and maintained by its original author. Bug reports (with or without patch), suggestions, feature requests, and comments are welcome. You may submit them through this distribution's bug tracker on github: https://github.com/mhasch/perl-Math-Polynomial/issues You can also reach the author by e-mail: Martin Becker, <becker-cpan-mp (at) cozap.com> The code for this distribution is hosted at GitHub. The repository is: https://github.com/mhasch/perl-Math-Polynomial If your contribution is accepted, you will be mentioned by name under ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS in the documentation. Please indicate if you prefer an alias or to stay anonymous. Development Guidelines ---------------------- This library, dealing with a mathematical concept, should first and foremost be scientifically sound. Correctness is rated over all other quality aspects. The second most important goal is a documentation and over-all presentation that makes it useful for experts and informative for anybody interested in the field. Thirdly, it should be easy to integrate correctly and efficiently with other software. Topics of interest ------------------ Possible improvements may address performance, perhaps by making third-party math libraries available as backends, or functionality, by adding missing operators like resultant and discriminant, or interoperability with other computer algebra libraries, or of course documentation. A number of possible extensions, as outlined in the section "EXTENSION GUIDELINES" in the main documentation, could be maintained either within the same library or separately. The scope of the library here is general functionality with few assumptions about coefficient spaces. Thus, an implementation variant optimized for sparse polynomials may fit here very well, while polynomial factoring algorithms, say, probably won't. Author's Note ------------- Thanks again for your interest. I am looking forward to your report or e-mail. Martin Becker, April 3, 2021.
