julia-blockarrays 0.16.8 BlockArrays for Julia

A block array is a partition of an array into blocks or subarrays. This package has two purposes. Firstly, it defines an interface for an AbstractBlockArray block arrays that can be shared among types representing different types of block arrays. The advantage to this is that it provides a consistent API for block arrays. Secondly, it also implements two different type of block arrays that follow the AbstractBlockArray interface. The type BlockArray stores each block contiguously while the type PseudoBlockArray stores the full matrix contiguously. This means that BlockArray supports fast non copying extraction and insertion of blocks while PseudoBlockArray supports fast access to the full matrix to use in in for example a linear solver.
