I looked at those, and also found your blog at drschemer.blogspot.com.
You are clearly "Mr Science" in the Racket world.

It looks like I have reading material for a while. I might actually
end up using the Simulation Collection myself, my field of work being
molecular simulation.

Moving all the maths to Typed Racket looks indeed like a good idea. In
fact, Typed Racket is one of the aspects that got me interested in the
Racket universe.

Definitely. But first I need to explore more of what's already there.
