F# .NET NAG numerical library with Integration, Interpolation,Approximation, RNG, Time Series Analysis, and Optimization

(Last Updated On: November 5, 2010)

NAG has just released their latest numerical library; the NAG Library for .NET. This is the first release of the library and includes over 400 methods for key mathematical and statistical areas, including Wavelet Transforms, Integration, Interpolation and Approximation, Random Number Generators, Time Series Analysis, and Optimization. The Optimization chapter contains methods for solving LP-, QP-, LS- and NLP-problems without constraints or with constraints. A global optimizer is also included, solving problems without constraints but with bounds on the variables.
The example in the link below illustrates how to solve a LS optimization problem using the NAG Library for .NET from F#. The problem is stated as follows: min 1/2 || b – Ax || ^ 2, where A is a (10 x 9)-matrix and b is a (10 x 1)-vector. The variables (x1,…,x9) are bounded and there are 3 general constraints.

For further questions regarding the usage of the .NET library we – the technical team at NAG (support@nag.co.uk) – would be happy to give anyone help using the .NET Lib for the first time or just chat…

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
