     1Chinese literature dating from as early as 650 BC tells the legend of Lo Shu  
     2or "scroll of the river Lo". In ancient China there was a huge flood. The great  
     3king Yu tried to channel the water out to sea where then emerged from the water  
     4a turtle with a curious figure/pattern on its shell; circular dots of numbers  
     5which were arranged in a three by three grid pattern such that the sum of the  
     6numbers in each row, column and diagonal was the same: 15, which is also the  
     7number of days in each of the 24 cycles of the Chinese solar year. 
     8 
     9This pattern, in a certain way, was used by the people in controlling the river.

     13An experimental linear algebra library for computer vision. 
     14Includes python bindings and a set of scripts for processing and viewing PCA  
     15calculations, particle filters and other things.

     17The code contains a few dependancies on OpenCV, but only in the image processing 
     18domain. I'm wary of OpenCV after problems with the code on different  
     19architectures.

     21It's not currenly optimised, but simd code is planned for the matrix  
     22calculations.
