IMSL Numerical Library for .NET Framework

The integration of the IMSL Library with Visual Studio's new Task Parallel Library gives developers performance increases on multi-core machines without additional development effort." said Dr. Ed Stewart, IMSL Product Manager, Rogue Wave Software.

Today, at the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Launch Conference and Expo, Visual Numerics, Inc., announced version 6.5 of the IMSL C# libraries. The IMSL C# Numerical Library for Microsoft .NET Framework offers developers seamless accessibility to analytic capabilities alongside the programming productivity and ease of use they enjoy in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

As the only numerical library of its kind to offer unprecedented analytic capabilities and charting, the IMSL Library can be referenced from any .NET Framework language including C#, F# and Visual Basic .NET. Version 6.5 of the IMSL C# libraries provides the most comprehensive, high-performing and accessible mathematical, statistical and financial algorithms for the .NET Framework and Microsoft Silverlight 3.

With .NET Framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft has extended the threading capabilities of the .NET Framework with the Task Parallel Library. The IMSL C# Library has integrated these threading patterns into dozens of functions, resulting in easy access to parallel-processing performance increases that take advantage of multi-core hardware.

"Visual Studio 2010, the .NET Framework 4, and the IMSL C# Numerical Library allow developers of analytical applications to harness the significant performance capabilities available through multi-core and many-core hardware," said Keith Yedlin, Product Unit Manager, Concurrency Development Platform, Microsoft. "The IMSL .NET classes are easily referenced from Visual Studio 2010 projects and offer implicit parallelization for nearly linear performance increases when additional processors are available. The IMSL library is itself parallelized with the new support for parallel programming available in the .NET Framework 4."
