It turns out that it is mentioned on the wiki, on the

I also updated the references to Numeric Quest
on the Mathematics and Physics page.

Can someone with access to darcs.haskell.org
please fix this library? darcs get currently does not
seem to work for it.


Also, these modules should each be moved into
the hierarchy somewhere. Does anyone have
suggestions? It may help to look at:
