Two papers about RcppEigen and RcppArmadillo published

Two papers got published recently.
The first one is
Bates and Eddelbuettel (2013).
It is titled
Fast and Elegant Numerical Linear Algebra Using the RcppEigen Package,
and provides a pretty thorough introduction to our
package which uses Rcpp
to provide access to the Eigen C++
template library from GNU R. The
paper is out as Volume 50, Issue 5 at
the (all electronic, open, and generally awesome)
Journal of Statistical Software. A
bibtex entry is

The second paper is
Eddelbuettel and Sanderson (2013).
This one is titled RcppArmadillo: Accelerating R with high-performance C++ linear algebra
and introduces the RcppArmadillo
package which brings Conrad Sanderson‘s
Armadillo C++ template library to GNU R
by deploying Rcpp.
The paper is currently “in press” at
Computational Statistics & Data Analysis
but the DOI 10.1016/j.csda.2013.02.005 will remain
once a volume and issue is assigned by CSDA.

Preprints of both papers are available via my papers page,
and as vignettes in the corresponding packages.

The upcoming Rcpp class in New York
will feature Rcpp,
RcppEigen. Space is still available.
