ILNumerics is a high performance math library for programmers and scientists. It simplifies the implementation of all kinds of numerical algorithms in convenient, familiar syntax - optimized to the speed of C and FORTRAN.
Scientists must often choose between convenient expressive syntax and reasonable execution speed. Todays mature application frameworks have the potential of bringing together these two. ILNumerics extends the .NET-framework with the objects and tools needed for scientific computing. It turns your favorite IDE into a powerful numerical algorithm development environment and C# into a 1st class mathematical language.
Using a managed general purpose language for algorithm development brings many advantages: programmers have direct access to the rich feature set of the .NET and the mono frameworks, a whole tool belt of professionial utilities is available: modern debuggers, profilers, IDEs.
Resulting programs run on all major platforms out of the box. Deployment, maintainance, handling of large projects – established software development principles now immediately apply to your numerical algorithms as well.
Most technical applications eventually utilize some kind of graphical user interface. ILNumerics allows the creation of complex visualizations with unique simplicity and performance.
It is being used for the integration of scientific plots and for sophisticated custom 3D visualizations. A convenient scene graph API realizes full interactivity and the abstraction of arbitrary scenes for many rendering targets like OpenGL, SVG and GDI+.
Benefits continue when it comes to performance: thousands of enterprise projects proove the .NET CLR to be one of the most mature managed environments nowadays. With its generational garbage collector (GC) and options for low level memory control the CLR offers far better performance than other popular computing frameworks.
ILNumerics abstracts away the nasty platform specific details one must keep in mind for C++ & Co. It automatically parallelizes your algorithms. A transparent memory management makes sure, the GC is not stressed at all. ILNumerics execution times are comparable to optimized C/C++ algorithms, nevertheless offering much higher syntactic convenience.
Users of ILNumerics work in any imaginable branch of science and industries. Academic and private users utilize the Community Edition. It is free of charge and open source under GPL version 3. For commercial products a proprietary license is provided within the Professional Edition. Read more!
ILNumerics is funded by the german Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology and supported by the Technical University of Berlin.
