 See also: Roadmap and Towards Math.NET Numerics Version 3.
 Major release with breaking changes
 All obsolete code has been removed
 Reworked redundancies, inconsistencies and unfortunate past design choices.
 Significant namespace simplifications (30%).

Linear Algebra:
 Favor and optimize for generic types, e.g.
Vector<double>
.  Drop the
.Generic
in the namespaces and flattened solver namespaces.  F#: all functions in the modules now fully generic, including the
matrix
function.  F#:
SkipZeros
instead of the crypticnz
suffix for clarity.  Add missing scalarmatrix routines.
 Optimized mixed densediagonal and diagonaldense operations (500x faster on 250k set).
 More reasonable choice of return structure on mixed operations (e.g. dense+diagonal).
 Add pointwise infix operators
.*
,./
,.%
where supported (F#)  Vectors explicitly provide proper L1, L2 and Linfinity norms.
 All norms return the result as double (instead of the specific value type of the matrix/vector).
 Matrix Linfinity norm now cacheoptimized (810x faster).
 Vectors have a
ConjugateDotProduct
in addition toDotProduct
. Matrix.ConjugateTransposeAndMultiply
and variants. Matrix Factorization types fully generic, easily accessed by new
Matrix<T>
member methods (replacing the extension methods). Discrete implementations no longer visible.  QR factorization is thin by default.
 Matrix factorizations no longer clone their results at point of access.
 Add direct factorizationbased
Solve
methods to matrix type.  Massive iterative solver implementation/design simplification, now mostly generic and a bit more functionalstyle.
 Renamed iterative solver stop criteria from 'criterium' to 'criterion'.
 New MILU(0) iterative solver preconditioner that is much more efficient and fully leverages sparse data. ~Christian Woltering
 Matrices/Vectors now have more consistent enumerators, with a variant that skips zeros (useful if sparse).
 Matrix/Vector creation routines have been simplified and usually no longer require explicit dimensions. New variants to create diagonal matrices, or such where all fields have the same value. All functions that take a params array now have an overload accepting an enumerable (e.g.
OfColumnVectors
).  Generic Matrix/Vector creation using builders, e.g.
Matrix<double>.Build.DenseOfEnumerable(...)
 Create a matrix from a 2Darray of matrices (topleft aligned within the grid).
 Create a matrix or vector with the same structural type as an example (
.Build.SameAs(...)
)  Removed nonstatic Matrix/Vector.CreateMatrix/CreateVector routines (no longer needed)
 Add Vector.OfArray (copying the array, consistent with Matrix.OfArray  you can still use the dense vector constructor if you want to use the array directly without copying).
 More convenient and one more powerful overload of
Matrix.SetSubMatrix
.  Matrices/Vectors expose whether storage is dense with a new IsDense property.
 Various minor performance work.
 Matrix.ClearSubMatrix no longer throws on 0 or negative col/row count (nop)
 BUG: Fix bug in routine to copy a vector into a subrow of a matrix.
 Both canonical modulus and remainder operations on matrices and vectors.
 Matrix kernel (null space) and range (column space)

 Matrix RemoveRow/RemoveColumn; more efficient InsertRow/InsertColumn
 Favor and optimize for generic types, e.g.

Native Linear Algebra/Intel MKL:
 Thin QR factorization uses MKL if enabled for all types (previously just
double
)  Sparse matrix CSR storage format now uses the much more common row pointer convention and is fully compatible with MKL (so there is nothing in the way to add native provider support).
 Providers have been moved to a
Providers
namespace and are fully generic again.  Simpler provider usage:
Control.UseNativeMKL()
,Control.UseManaged()
.  MKL native provider now supports capability querying (so we can extend it much more reliably without breaking your code).
 MKL native provider consistency, precision and accuracy now configurable (tradeoff).
 Native Provider development has been reintegrated into the main repository; we can now directly run all unit tests against local native provider builds. Covered by FAKE builds.
 Thin QR factorization uses MKL if enabled for all types (previously just

Statistics:
 Pearson and Spearman correlation matrix of a set of arrays.
 Spearman ranked correlation optimized (4x faster on 100k set)

 Binomial.CDF now properly leverages BetaRegularized.
 BUG: Fix hypergeometric CDF semantics, clarify distribution parameters.

SystemRandomSource
.  Fast and simple to use static
SystemRandomSource.Doubles
routine with lower randomness guarantees.  Shared
SystemRandomSource.Default
andMersenneTwister.Default
instances to skip expensive initialization.  Using threadsafe random source by default in distributions, Generate, linear algebra etc.
 Tests always use seeded RNGs for reproducability.
 F#: direct sampling routines in the
Random
module, also including default and shared instances.

 NuGet packages now also include the PCL portable profile 47 (.Net 4.5, Silverlight 5, Windows 8) in addition to the normal .Net 4.0 build and PCL profile 136 (.Net 4.0, WindowsPhone 8, Silverlight 5, Windows 8) as before. Profile 47 uses
System.Numerics
for complex numbers, among others, which is not available in profile 136.  NuGet packages now also include a .Net 3.5 build of the core library.
 IO libraries have been removed, replaced with new
.Data
packages (see list on top).  Alternative strongnamed versions of more NuGet packages (mostly the F# extensions for now), with the
.Signed
suffix.  Reworked solution structure so it works in both Visual Studio 11 (2012) and 12 (2013).
 We can now run the full unit test suite against the portable builds as well.
 Builds should now also work properly on recent Mono on Linux (including F# projects).
 Fixed builds on platforms with case sensitive file systems. ~Gauthier Segay
 Integration: simplification of the doubleexponential transformation api design.
 FFT: converted to static class design and shorter names for simpler usage. Drop now redundant
Transform
class.  Generate: ported synthetic data generation and sampling routines from Neodym (includes all from old Signals namespace). F# module for higher order functions.
 Euclid: modulus vs remainder (also BigInteger), integer theory (includes all from old NumberTheory namespace).
 Complex: common short names for Exp, Ln, Log10, Log.
 Complex: fix issue where a negative zero may flip the sign in special cases (like
Atanh(2)
, where incidentally MATLAB and Mathematica do not agree on the sign either).  Complex: routines to return all two square and three cubic roots of a complex number.
 Complex: More robust complex Asin/Acos for large real numbers.
 Evaluate: routine to evaluate complex polynomials, or real polynomials at a complex point.
 CommonParallel now also supported in .Net 3.5 and portable profiles; TaskScheduler can be replaced with custom implementation ~Thomas Ibel
 F# BigRational type cleaned up and optimized ~Jack Pappas
 F# BigRational IsZero, IsOne, IsInteger, create from fraction.
 F# BigRational Reciprocal, Power operator support (), support for negative integer powers.
 F# functions now use the clearer
Func
suffix instead of justF
if they return a function.  Precision: reworked, now much more consistent. If you use
AlmostEqual
with numbersbetween/ULP semantics, please do review your code to make sure you're still using the expected variant!. If you use the decimalplaces semantics, you may need to decrement the digits argument to get the same behavior as before.  Much less null checks, our code generally only throws
ArgumentNullException
if an unexpected null argument would not have caused an immediateNullReferenceException
.  Cases where
ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptions
where thrown with wrong arguments (i.e. no parameter name) now throwArgumentException
instead.  Tests now have category attributes (to selectively run or skip categories).

 Linear Curve Fitting: Linear leastsquares fitting (regression) to lines, polynomials and linear combinations of arbitrary functions. Multidimensional fitting. Also works well in F# with the F# extensions.

Root Finding:
 Brent's method. ~Candy Chiu, Alexander Täschner
 Bisection method. ~Scott Stephens, Alexander Täschner
 Broyden's method, for multidimensional functions. ~Alexander Täschner
 NewtonRaphson method.
 Robust NewtonRaphson variant that tries to recover automatically in cases where it would fail or converge too slowly. This modification makes it more robust e.g. in the presence of singularities and less sensitive to the search range/interval.
 All algorithms support a TryFindpattern which returns success instead of throwing an exception.
 Special case for quadratic functions, in the future to be extended e.g. to polynomials.
 Basic bracketing algorithm
 Also works well in F# with the F# extensions.

Linear Algebra:
 Native eigenvalue decomposition (EVD) support with our MKL packages ~Marcus Cuda
 Add missing scalarvector operations (sv, s/v, s%v) ~Thomas Ibel
 Support for new F# 3.1 row/column slicing syntax on matrices
 Matrices learned proper OfColumn/RowVectors, analog also in F#.
 Documentation Fixes ~Robin Neatherway
 BUG: Fixed exception text message when creating a matrix from enumerables (rows vs columns) ~Thomas Ibel
 We're phasing out MathNet.Numerics.IO that used to be included in the main package for matrix file I/O for text and Matlab formats. Use the new .Data.Text and .Data.Matlab packages instead.
 Statistics: Spearman Rank Correlation Coefficient ~Iain McDonald
 Statistics: Covariance function, in Array, Streaming and common Statistics.
 Distributions: Categorical: distribution more consistent, no longer requires normalized pdf/cdf parameters
 Distributions: Categorical: inverse CDF function ~Paul Varkey
 BUG: Distributions: Fixed static sampling methods of the
Stable
distribution. ~Artyom Baranovskiy  BUG: Fixed a bug in the Gamma Regularized special function where in some cases with large values it returned 1 instead of 0 and vice versa.
 The F# extensions now have a strong name in (and only in) the signed package as well (previously had not been signed). ~Gauthier Segay
 Evaluate.Polynomial with new overload which is easier to use.
 Fixed a couple badly designed unit tests that failed on Mono.
 Repository now Vagrantready for easy testing against recent Mono on Debian.
2.5.0  20130414
 See also: What's New in Math.NET Numerics 2.5
 Statistics: Empty statistics now return NaN instead of either 0 or throwing an exception. This may break code in case you relied upon the previous unusual and inconsistent behavior.
 Linear Algebra: More reasonable ToString behavior for matrices and vectors. This may break code if you relied upon ToString to export your full data to text form intended to be parsed again later. Note that the classes in the MathNet.Numerics.IO library are more appropriate for storing and loading data.

Statistics:
 More consistent behavior for empty and singleelement data sets: Min, Max, Mean, Variance, Standard Deviation etc. no longer throw exceptions if the data set is empty but instead return NaN. Variance and Standard Deviation will also return NaN if the set contains only a single entry. Population Variance and Population Standard Deviation will return 0 in this case.
 Reworked order statistics (Quantile, Quartile, Percentile, IQR, Fivenum, etc.), now much easier to use and supporting compatibility with all 9 Rtypes, Excel and Mathematica. The obsolete Percentile class now leverages the new order statistics, fixing a range check bug as side effect.
 New Hybrid Monte Carlo sampler for multivariate distributions. ~manyue
 New financial statistics: absolute risk and return measures. ~Phil Cleveland
 Explicit statistics for sorted arrays, unsorted arrays and sequences/streams. Faster algorithms on sorted data, also avoids multiple enumerations.
 Some statistics like Quantile or empirical inverse CDF can optionally return a parametric function when multiple evaluations are needed, like for plotting.

Linear Algebra:
 More reasonable ToString behavior for matrices and vectors:
ToString
methods no longer render the whole structure to a string for large data, among others because they used to wreak havoc in debugging and interactive scenarios like F# FSI. Instead, ToString now only renders an excerpt of the data, together with a line about dimension, type and in case of sparse data a sparseness indicator. The intention is to give a good idea about the data in a visually useful way. How much data is shown can be adjusted in the Control class. See also ToTypeString and ToVector/MatrixString.  Performance: reworked and tuned common parallelization. Some operations are up to 3 magnitudes faster in some extreme cases. Replaced copy loops with native routines. More algorithms are storageaware (and should thus perform better especially on sparse data). ~Thomas Ibel, Iain McDonald, Marcus Cuda
 Fixed range checks in the ThinQR decomposition. ~Marcus Cuda
 BUG: Fixed bug in Gram Schmidt for solving tall matrices. ~Marcus Cuda
 Vectors now implement the BCL IList interfaces (fixedlength) for better integration with existing .Net code. ~Scott Stephens
 Matrix/Vector parsing has been updated to be able to parse the new visual format as well (see ToMatrixString).
 DebuggerDisplay attributes for matrices and vectors.
 Map/IndexedMap combinators with storageaware and partially parallelized implementations for both dense and sparse data.
 Reworked Matrix/Vector construction from arrays, enumerables, indexed enumerables, nested enumerables or by providing an init function/lambda. Nonobsolete constructors now always use the raw data array directly without copying, while static functions always return a matrix/vector independent of the provided data source.
 F#: Improved extensions for matrix and vector construction: create, zeroCreate, randomCreate, init, ofArray2, ofRows/ofRowsList, ofColumns/ofColumnsList, ofSeqi/Listi (indexed). Storageaware for performance.
 F#: Updated map/mapi and other combinators to leverage core implementation, added nz variants where zerovalues may be skipped (relevant mostly for sparse matrices).
 F#: Idiomatic slice setters for submatrices and subvectors
 F#: More examples for matrix/vector creation and linear regression in the F# Samplepackage.
 More reasonable ToString behavior for matrices and vectors:
 Control: Simpler usage with new static ConfigureAuto and ConfigureSingleThread methods. Resolved misleading configuration logic and naming around disabling parallelization.
 Control: New settings for linear algebra ToString behavior.
 Fixed range check in the Xorshift pseudoRNG.
 Parallelization: Reworked our common logic to avoid expensive lambda calls in inner loops. Tunable.
 F#: Examples (and thus the NuGet Sample package) are now F# scripts prepared for experimenting interactively in FSI, instead of normal F# files. Tries to get the assembly references right for most users, both within the Math.NET Numerics solution and the NuGet package.
 Various minor improvements on consistency, performance, tests, xml docs, obsolete attributes, redundant code, argument checks, resources, cleanup, nuget, etc.
