Porting and optimizing the SciMark2 benchmark

The F#.NET Journal just published an article about the SciMark2 benchmark from NIST:

"The SciMark2 benchmark is a suite of numerical algorithms that were originally collated into a benchmark for scientific computing on the Java platform. Porting this benchmark to F# provides an excellent tutorial on the implementation of efficient numerical algorithms and the existing C# implementation of this benchmark can be used for comparison. The results illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of the current F# implementation in terms of performance..."
