### Commercial libraries
Here are some commercial libraries:
- * [StatFactory FCore](http://www.statfactory.co.uk/)
- * [QuantAlea] (http://www.quantalea.net/). GPU-accelerated financial analysis libraries.
- * Flying Frog
- * MKL?
- * etc..
+ * [Extreme Optimization Numerical Libraries for .NET](http://www.extremeoptimization.com/) -
+ a set of three libraries focused on vector and matrix processing,
+ linear algebra methods, and statics functions. The library includes a large selection of
+ standard algorithms from matrix factorization, function optimization, numerical integration,
+ K-means clustering, and PCA (principal component analysis). Options are provided to run
+ using pure managed code for portability or to utilize highly tuned native code for
+ additional performance. Supports .NET 3.5 and 4.0 (2.0 version available) and executing on Mono.
+ A Windows-based .NET environment is required for compilation.
+
+ * [StatFactory FCore](http://www.statfactory.co.uk/) - a high-performance numerical
+ library supporting both CPU and GPGPU computing. The library includes multi-dimensional
+ dense matrix and 2d sparse matrix support, standard linear algebra routines, and summary
+ statistics. The library provides options to run both 100% managed code or to use optimized
+ native libaries such as MKL.
+
+ * [Alea.CUDA]( http://www.quantalea.net/news/2012/11/Alea_CUDA.php) - a framework
+ for developing GPU-accelerated code in F# on .NET and Mono. Utilizing F# quotations and the
+ LLVM compiler it is able to compile GPU kernels on-the-fly and schedule them on one or more
+ nVidia processors. Alea.CUDA will be available soon from [Quantalea](http://www.quantalea.net/).
+
+ * [F# for Numerics](http://www.ffconsultancy.com/products/fsharp_for_numerics/) -
+ a collection of numeric algorithms including matrix operations, optimization and
+ interpolation functions, 1d and 2d FFTs, and pseudorandom number generation. The library uses
+ the standard F# PowerPack Matrix for compatibility. F# for Numerics supports .NET but does not
+ support Mono. Currently in Beta and available from [Flying Frog Consulytancy](http://www.ffconsultancy.com/).
+
+ * [F# for Visualization](http://www.ffconsultancy.com/products/fsharp_for_visualization/index.html) -
+ a 2d and 3d vector graphics library with a native F# interface. The
+ package provides interactive plotting from wthin Visual Studio and support for generating
+ animations. F# for Visualization supports .NET but does not support Mono. Currently in
+ Beta and available from [Flying Frog Consulytancy](http://www.ffconsultancy.com/).
