Programming Math in Java - Lessons from Apache Commons Math - Phil Steitz

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Apache Commons Math is a general-purpose mathematics library written in Java. In this talk, we will provide an overview of the library, showing how to use it to solve a wide range of common mathematical programming problems. Along the way, we will point out design and implementation challenges that we have faced over the years in choosing algorithms, developing the API, handling corner cases and balancing performance, accuracy and useability considerations. We will conclude with an update on work in progress and what the community is talking about regarding future directions.
