IMSL C# and JMSL version 6.0 releases deliver significant design improvements and features from the recent IMSL C version 7.0 that is one of our most ambitious product updates in recent years

Today, Visual Numerics, Inc., a 39-year producer of advanced numerical analysis and visualization software, announced the immediate availability of version 6.0 of the IMSL C# and JMSL libraries. IMSL C# Library is the most extensive numerical library available to .NET developers. The JMSL Library is the broadest commercial numerical library available to Java programmers. Both 6.0 releases of the libraries include additional statistical, numerical analysis, charting and graphing features, and increased performance of the products' numerous algorithms.

"IMSL C# and JMSL version 6.0 releases deliver significant design improvements and features from the recent IMSL C version 7.0 that is one of our most ambitious product updates in recent years," said Dr. Ed Stewart, IMSL Product Manager, Visual Numerics. "The performance improvements and many new analytic capabilities will provide Java and .NET developer communities new opportunity to deliver valuable analytic solutions in a cost-effective manner."

The TIOBE Programming Community Index, a survey that rates the popularity of programming languages, ranks Java as the most popular programming language, globally, in 2009. According to the report, C# has grown in popularity to 6th place out of 50 programming languages surveyed. Visual Numerics regularly delivers new algorithms and data visualization functionality to the IMSL C#, and JMSL libraries. The growing IMSL C# and Java libraries offer new options to enterprises seeking to migrate analytic applications developed with C or Fortran libraries.

The many new and updated algorithms in the IMSL C# and Java libraries provide unique numerical analysis techniques to customers solving analytic problems in finance, business intelligence, data mining and other areas of business, science and research. For example:

  • Finance customers will benefit from a new Feynman-Kac algorithm that solves Black-Scholes problems, two new least squares optimizers, Random Copula methods, Survival Analysis; Logistic and Pareto distributions, and new support for Treemap data-visualization.
  • Business intelligence and data mining software developers can leverage Naïve Bayes for classification and text mining problems. In addition, new classification capabilities in the Neural Network algorithm and new ways to select Auto_ARIMA models offer additional classification and forecasting techniques.

The IMSL C# Library offers increased performance from further leveraging Intel's Math Kernal Library. Both libraries offer more functions in native C# and Java, increasing their performance by eliminating the need to call the IMSL C library.

"Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) is a library of highly optimized, extensively threaded math routines for science, engineering, and financial applications that require maximum performance," said James Reinders, Director with Intel Software Development Products. "IMSL C# brings the power of Intel MKL and IMSL to C# developers to get great performance on Intel and compatible processors."
