It is my pleasure to announce the release of the IMSL C Numerical Library version 8.0 with platform updates and new functionality. In addition to expanding the library of powerful math and statistics algorithms, this release allows users with supported hardware to simply link the IMSL C Library with NVIDIA’s CUDA BLAS to gain the significant performance improvement available by offloading processing to the GPU.

Enhancements in this release include:

New sparse Linear and Quadratic Programming algorithms
New time series modeling algorithms including Regression ARIMA, Holt-Winters exponential smoothing and Auto-PARM for structural break identification
New statistical analysis routines including Maximum Likelihood Estimates, False Discovery Rate and tests for fit including the Anderson-Darling and Cramer-von Mises tests
Additional linear algebra functions SuperLU (real and complex) and a non-negative least squares implementation
Additional functions parallelized for multi-core systems using OpenMP

Platform updates:

x86-32 Red Hat Linux – gcc compiler
x86-64 Red Hat Linux – gcc compiler
x86-32 SuSE Linux – gcc compiler
x86-64 SuSE Linux – gcc compiler
x86-64 Solaris – Sun Studio compiler
x86-32 Windows – Visual Studio
x86-64 Windows – Visual Studio

Additional platform releases are planned over the next several months.
