Subject [math] Support for Abelian Groups and Rings?
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2011 14:00:39 GMT
I'm using quite extensively the Field/FieldElement interfaces, but am
sometimes feeling the need for less stringent sets like Abelian Groups
(no multiplication) and Rings (no division). This would allow me to
carry out some calculations on different types of number simply by
changing the generic type.
I was thinking of adding some interfaces along the lines of the two
above mentioned
  - AbelianGroup<T>, AbelianGroupElement<T>,
  - Ring<T>, RingElement<T>.

Do you think that would be useful?

Thank you very much,
