An important library in the C# and F# open source communities is the Math.NET Numerics library. I blogged the first part in a (slow) series on using the library from F# back in June and there is another tutorial as part of the Numerical Libraries for F# and the .NET Framework overview from early last year. We also…

## Getting Started with Math.NET and F# Programming

This is the first blog in a series to help F# programmers keep up-to-date with different ways of doing numerically-oriented programming with F#. The first posts in this series will focus on the open source Math.NET Numerics library. Math.NET Numerics is an opensource numerical library for F# and C# on .NET and Mono, including implementations of .NET supporting .NET…

## Updated version of "TrueSkill Through Time" Bayesian Inference Code

Back in 2007 Ralf Herbrich and co. wrote a research paper called “TrueSkill Through Time”. Their sample code was written with a pre-release of F# 1.0, and was not updated to F# in Visual Studio 2010. Here is an update of this code for F# in Visual Studio 2010, as requested by some people commenting…

## Microsoft Releases Local, Distributed and Cloud Numerics Library, with F# Samples

At last, Microsoft have released its long awaited Cloud Numerics library!!! A huge congratulations to the Cloud Numerics team (follow their blog!), and I encourage everyone in the F# community to be looking at the use of these wonderful technologies together. The recently announced library is a great fit for F# analytical computing. The Cloud Numerics team…

## StatFactory: FCore maths & statistics library, designed for use with F#

Regular readers of my blog will know that from time to time I post pointers to technologies that work with F#, as a service to the F# community. I’ve blogged in the past about other maths and stats libraries that work with F#, and am adding another one today! StatFactory have released FCore, a .NET/native numerical library…

## Math.Net Numerics Beta 2, plus a competition for a fast matrix multiply

The contributors to Math.NET have just released their final beta for Math.NET Numerics. This wonderful package includes both NuGet packages and F# integration! From the Math.NET Numerics site: Download the MathNet.Numerics.dll assembly, add a reference to it to your project and you’re done. To make this even easier we also publish binary releases to the NuGet…

## Logistic Regression in F# using Microsoft Solver Foundation

Following on from my last post on Support Vector Machines in F# using Microsoft Solver Foundation, I’d also like to point to Yin Zhu’s post on Logistic Regression in F# using Microsoft Solver Foundation. Enjoy! Don Logistic Regression in F# using Microsoft Solver Foundation Logistic regression is a workhorse in data mining. Like decision trees…

## Support vector machines (SVMs) in F# using Microsoft Solver Foundation

One of the F# blogs I follow all the time is F# for Data Mining by Yin Zhu in Hong Kong. Yin’s latest post really caught my eye: An Introduction to Support Vector Machines in F# using Microsoft Solver Foundation. SVMs are a statistical machine learning technique used for all sorts of purposes, from finance…
