The next Library release will include more optimization routines, additional regression methods, extended wavelet functions, new surface fitting routines, further ODE solvers, enhanced random number generators... to mention only some of the content. So, particularly at the moment, it’s a real pleasure to have conversations with the individual developers and hear how some of the subtle design decisions that are made during the development process provide such large benefits, in usability, accuracy and performance, to users of our routines. For example one of the new optimization routines provides a new approach to solving bound constrained problems without requiring derivatives – making this solver very efficient for a range of large dimensional problems.
All these recent conversations have reminded me that we certainly have the expertise and the right attitude to help you. So do get in touch, at any time, if you want to discuss which of the hundreds of NAG routines you can use to solve your specific problem.
