The IMSL Numerical Libraries have been the cornerstone of high-performance and deep computing as well as predictive analytics applications in science, technical and business environments for well over three decades. These embeddable mathematical and statistical algorithms, written in C, C#, Java™, and Fortran, are used in a broad range of applications -- from programs that help airplanes fly to allowing people to predict theweather, to those that enable innovative ways to study the human genome as well as applications
that predict stock market behavior and provide risk management and portfolio optimization. The IMSL Libraries are regarded as the most sophisticated, flexible, scalable and highly accessible technology available for numerical analysis in the most important mainstream programming environments in use today.
Mathematical and Statistical Functionality for Sophisticated Applications
The IMSL Libraries are a comprehensive set of mathematical and statistical functions that programmers can embed into their software applications. The IMSL Libraries provide high-performance computing software and expertise needed to develop and execute sophisticated numerical analysis applications. These libraries free users from developing their own internal code by providing pre-written mathematical and statistical algorithms that can be embedded into C, C#, Java™, and Fortran applications.
Its robust, accurate, reliable mathematical and statistical library provides functionality in a wide range of numerical computing areas including:
Time series analysis
and many more
