Business Analytics with the IMSL™ C# Numerical Library

Today, business decisions need to be based on powerful and timely business analytics - leveraging all the rich data collected over the years. By using mathematical and statistical algorithms, greater understanding comes from discovering new insights about relationships between variables within the enterprise.

With the use of the IMSL C# Numerical Library, applications built on the Microsoft .NET Framework can provide more powerful business analytics than ever before. The IMSL C# Library contains powerful algorithms that are the backbone of common analytics such as profit maximization, product design optimization, supply chain efficiency optimization, and demand forecasting.

Advanced Numerical Analysis for Microsoft .NET Applications

The IMSL C# Numerical Library is a numerical analysis library written in 100% C#, providing broad coverage of advanced mathematics and statistics for the .NET Framework. This offers C# or Visual Basic™ .NET (VB.NET) developers seamless accessibility to analytics capabilities in the most integrated language for the .NET environment with the highest degree of programming productivity and ease of use with Visual Studio™.

With the IMSL C# Library Visual Numerics has brought all of the benefits inherent in the C# and VB.NET languages to a new dimension by adding robust analytics to its broad set of capabilities. The IMSL C# Library is the only numerical library of its kind to offer industry standard numerical analysis for the C# and VB.NET languages.

Delivering a New Level of Deep Computing

Now, developers of C# or VB.NET analytic applications for the .NET Framework can rely on the numerical analysis functionality of the IMSL C# Library and focus their efforts on application development. With its embeddability and scalability, the IMSL C# Library delivers a new level of deep computing to Visual Studio users that developers working on high performance computing systems have enjoyed for decades.

Visual Numerics has taken C# to a new level by adding critical mathematics extensions, such as the ability to handle complex numbers, significantly increasing the high performance analytics capabilities available for the .NET Framework. The algorithms in the IMSL C# Library are extremely accurate, as they are based on over three decades of Visual Numerics' technical computing experience with the IMSL Family of products. For the first time, .NET application developers have the unprecedented ability to build advanced analytics into applications without having to wrangle with the inefficiencies and hassles of wrapped code.


  • First of Its Kind
    The first and only comprehensive mathematical and statistical library, written in 100% C#, for the .NET Framework.
  • Ease of Use with C# and VB.NET Languages
    Written in pure C#, the IMSL C# Library offers all the benefits of that language such as automatic memory allocation, automatic garbage collection, no pointers to adjust, and more. It seamlessly integrates with VB.NET, making it easy to call IMSL routines from programs written in that language, and the fully thread-safe static methods enable thread safe application development.
  • Operability within the Visual Studio Environment
    Easily installs into Microsoft Visual Studio to provide advanced analytics regardless of whether programming is done in VB.NET, C# or another .NET-compliant language.
  • Special Capacity for Advanced Analysis
    Visual Numerics has achieved increased performance for the IMSL C# Library by extending the mathematical framework of the C# language, with such things as complex number handling, thereby significantly increasing the high-performance analytics capabilities available for the .NET Framework.
  • Easy Interoperability with a Broad Range of Charting Capabilities
    Provides interoperability within the .NET Framework allowing for easy access to Excel, .NET utilities and third party charting packages for simple to advanced visualizations.
  • User Friendly Nomenclature
    Uses descriptive explanatory class and method names for intuitive programming.
  • Error Handling
    Diagnostic error messages are clear and informative, designed not only to convey the error condition, but also to suggest corrective action, if appropriate.
  • Productive Programming
    Due to full compliance and integration with the .NET Framework, it significantly shortens program development time, promotes standardization, and ensures future compatibility.
