Numerical Libraries: special functions, interpolation and random numbers

The F#.NET Journal just published an article describing how existing .NET numerical libraries can be used from F#:

"The F# programming language provides an excellent foundation for technical computing on the Windows platform thanks to its high-performance interactive sessions and integrated support for mathematical types. This article is our first look at numerical libraries, both free and commercial, and describes the implementation quality and easy of use of these libraries in the context of special functions, interpolation and random numbers...."

Thanks for reviewing Math.NET!

The mentioned Gamma function precision issue has just been fixed in the 2008 April release, and Iridium now also provides a normal (non-logarithmic) Gamma function which supports negative arguments.

Thanks,
Chris
