The many new and updated algorithms in the IMSL C Library version 8.5 provide unique numerical analysis techniques to customers in major corporations, academic institutions, and research laboratories worldwide. There are several enhancements and new functions including:

More functions that work with streaming data

More functions that work with big data or distributed data

Decision Trees

Apriori for Association Rule Discovery

Support Vector Machines

Kohonen Self Organizing Maps

Vector Auto-Regression

Vector Error Correction Model

Enhanced parallelization of the solution of sparse linear systems using OpenMP

Support of CUDA 5.5

'We are very excited to bring version 8.5 of the IMSL C Library to market,' said Wendy Hou, IMSL Product Manager, Rogue Wave Software. 'The new release offers more ways to analyze data and more built-in capability to facilitate a robust, reliable analytical process amid datasets of increasing size and complexity.
