Perforce’s IMSL Celebrate 50 Years as the Trusted Source for Advanced Mathematical and Statistical Algorithms

MINNEAPOLIS, October 8, 2020 — Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, is proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of IMSL Numerical Libraries.

IMSL is the go-to collection of numerical algorithms for scientists and engineers throughout the world. Used by 90% world’s largest aerospace companies and 60% of the top research universities in the United States, IMSL is committed to helping customers enhance application performance and reliability, as well as save development time and cost.

Since 1970, IMSL has been a reliable, consistent, and trusted source for mathematical and statistical algorithms used in data mining and analysis. Beginning with an initial release of just 200 algorithms, the portfolio has grown over 400% to be the largest commercially available collection supporting multiple languages — C/C++, Fortran, Java, and Python.

“Our team of data scientists and developers have navigated decades of changing technologies, from mainframes and distributed computing environments to machine learning and deep neural networks,” said Tim Russell, Chief Product Officer at Perforce. “We are committed to ensuring that the IMSL portfolio meets the needs of our customer, and we do that with a consistent release cadence of the most accurate algorithms available.” The latest release, IMSL C 2020, was made available this week and includes new and updated algorithms for nonlinear equations, regression, time series analysis, and more.

As part of Perforce Software, IMSL continues to look to the future and remains diligent in efforts to provide the essential building blocks needed to develop analytic tools to organizations around the world.
