The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) has expanded the NAG C Library (the largest commercially available collection of numerical algorithms for C and C++, widely used for automotive design application development) with the addition of more than 150 functions for a total of more than 1,300 user-callable functions. Many of these are key to new automotive components and products modeling and other automotive research, NAG says.

The new release of The NAG Library includes two new chapters on wavelet transforms and global optimization. A new sub-chapter has also been introduced on option pricing. Enhancements have been made in the areas of statistics, optimization, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, regression, random numbers, sorting, and special functions.

With origins in several UK universities, the Numerical Algorithms Group is an Oxford, UK headquartered not-for-profit numerical software development organization that collaborates with leading researchers and practitioners in academia and industry.
