Design Philosophy | CenterSpace Software

By: Centerspace  06-Dec-2011

Simple things should be simple, complicated things should be possible. – Alan Kay

The CenterSpace design philosophy is to create an interface that is easy-to-use and accessible by the average developer for all common use cases. New users can explore the NMath framework and quickly become productive, and NMath functionality can easily be incorporated into existing projects. As users become more proficient, the framework interface must allow them to explore more complex use cases.

Our goal at CenterSpace is to employ all the tools of object-oriented design to balance these sometimes opposing goals into a consistent, stepwise-discoverable framework.

NMath 5.1 | CenterSpace Software

Classes for factoring structured sparse matrices, including LU factorization for banded and tridiagonal matrices, Bunch-Kaufman factorization for symmetric and Hermitian matrices, and Cholesky decomposition for symmetric and Hermitian positive definite matrices. Full-featured vector and matrix classes for four datatypes: single- and double-precision floating point numbers, and single- and double-precision complex numbers.


NMath Stats 3.4 | CenterSpace Software

Special functions, such as factorial, log factorial, binomial coefficient, log binomial, log gamma, incomplete gamma, beta, and incomplete beta. NMath Stats is a .NET statistics library containing classes for data manipulation, statistical computation, and biostatistics. Data filtering, including a moving average filter and a Savitzky-Golay smoothing filter.


Benchmarks | CenterSpace Software | C# and .NET Math Libraries

For many computations, NMath uses the Intel® Math Kernel Library , which contains highly-optimized, extensively-threaded versions of the C and FORTRAN public domain computing packages known as the BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines) and LAPACK. The data also show the negligible overhead relative to straight C or C++ involved in invoking MKL from managed .NET code. Each test was run 10 times and the average time was computed.
