"""Simple string to display a floating point matrix
This should give the same output on multiple systems. This is
needed because a simple "print matrix" uses scientific notation
which varies between platforms.
Only 4 decimal places are used to avoid false test failures due
to slight differences in the calculation (e.g. due to different
versions of the underlying libraries or the compilation options
they used).
