This is a the main documentation for the JMathLib Program.
Work in progress
Like the JMathLib program this is a work in progress.
All efforts will be made to keep the documentation in
sync with the main program but it might not be completely
up to date.
In mid of 2001 I was looking for a computational engine which has an easy
scripting language and which should be very flexible. Also I did have no other
projects to spend my leisure time on, the last project was finished and at work
was no access to a flexible simulation tool like
Matlab. A search in the open
source world on the internet came up with a couple of hits like octave, scilab,
rlab and some more. Some were already very advanced, but they are all written
in C or C++ and I was looking for something in my favourite programming
language, which is java. So finally I found
JMathLib, which is hosted
at sourceforge.net. The project had just started some months ago and only had
one developer so far. This is when I met Mark Sparshatt and very soon I became
an active member of the developing team. Which had the magical size of two
individuals at that time.
Some of my other projects can be found
