EiffelMath: Objects are for numerics too!

Eiffel Power (TM) from ISE

EiffelMath is a library of reusable object-oriented components for numerical computation, providing developers of financial, engineeering and scientific software with the full power of object technology.

EiffelMath is built on top of the extensive C library of mathematical software produced by the Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG). EiffelMath is not just a straight Eiffel encapsulation of the functions of the NAG library but presents developers with a full O-O view of numerical abstractions, taking full advantage of the Eiffel method: assertions applying the full Design by Contract approach, simple routine interfaces (with small argument lists), simple and consistent error handling through Eiffel's disciplined exception mechanism, and of course an object-oriented set of concepts organized around the principal abstract concepts of scientific software.

EiffelMath covers a wide range of numerical problems:

Probability and Statistics

Numerical Integration

Solution of Nonlinear Equations

Ordinary Differential Equations

Solution of Linear Equations

Solutions of Eigenproblems

Fitting and Interpolation

Orthogonal Factorizations and Linear Least Squares


Special Functions

Fast Fourier Transforms

Time Series Analysis

and more.

EiffelMath is described in detail in Paul Dubois's book Object Technology for Scientific Computing, which presents the design of the library, explains how best to use it, and shows how best to use object technology for scientific developments.
