Announcing NMath 6.1 and NMath Stats 4.1

We’re pleased to announce new versions of the NMath libraries – NMath 6.1, and NMath Stats 4.1.

Added functionality includes:

  • Upgraded to Intel MKL 11.2 Update 2 with resulting performance increases.
  • Updated NMath Premium GPU code to CUDA 6.
  • Added classes for solving linear and nonlinear programming problems with integer or binary constraints.
  • Added class SpecialFunctions containing special functions such as factorial, binomial, the gamma function and related functions, Bessel functions, elliptic integrals, and many more. (Prior versions of a few of these functions, such as StatsFunctions.IncompleteGamma, are now deprecated.)
  • Added a new native library, nmath_sf_x86.dll and nmath_sf_x64.dll, with high-performance C language implementations of the special functions.
  • Added single-precision versions of general sparse matrix and vector types.
