Review: F# for Visualization

Granville Barnett has kindly written a review of our F# for Visualization library. The review includes several interesting examples generated using our new interactive 3D visualization features.

F# for Visualization 0.3.1.3


The latest version of our F# for Visualization library includes full support for 3D visualization including axes with scales and interactive mouse control as well as high-fidelity surface plots for functions of two variables.

Preliminary performance measurements indicate that the 3D function plotter is already 20× faster than Mathematica 6 thanks to the performance of the F# programming language from Microsoft.

Real-time Finite Element Materials simulation

The F#.NET Journal just published an article that develops an interactive toy program:

"Finite Element Materials simulations (FEMs) model a continuous volume of material by breaking it down into a discrete representation with many finite parts. This article describes a simple but fun program that simulates the dynamics of a 2D system of particles and springs in real-time. The program includes an interactive GUI visualization based upon Windows Presentation Foundation..."

Scalable distributed parallelism with MPI.NET

The F#.NET Journal just published an article about MPI:

"High-performance programs are often run on clusters of machines and the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the defacto standard for inter-process communication for this kind of distributed parallelism. This article demonstrates just how easily existing .NET libraries can be used to parallelize F# programs across clusters of machines using MPI..."
