Announcement

MDArray version 0.5.5.2 has been released. MDArray is a multi dimensional array implemented for JRuby inspired by NumPy (www.numpy.org) and Masahiro Tanaka´s Narray (narray.rubyforge.org).
MDArray stands on the shoulders of Java-NetCDF and Parallel Colt. At this point MDArray has libraries for linear algebra, mathematical, trigonometric and descriptive statistics methods.

NetCDF-Java Library is a Java interface to NetCDF files, as well as to many other types of scientific data formats. It is developed and distributed by Unidata (http://www.unidata.ucar.edu).

Parallel Colt (https://sites.google.com/site/piotrwendykier/software/parallelcolt is a multithreaded version of Colt (http://acs.lbl.gov/software/colt/). Colt provides a set of Open Source Libraries for High Performance Scientific and Technical Computing in Java. Scientific and technical computing is characterized by demanding problem sizes and a need for high performance at reasonably small memory footprint.

What´s new:

Version 0.5.5.2 is a bug fix for a class StringArray. In Java-NetCDF when passing "string" as type an ObjectArray is created and not a StringArray. This version fix this issue and gets a StringArray when the "string" type is selected.

MDArray and SciRuby:

MDArray subscribes fully to the SciRuby Manifesto (http://sciruby.com/).

“Ruby has for some time had no equivalent to the beautifully constructed NumPy, SciPy, and matplotlib libraries for Python.

We believe that the time for a Ruby science and visualization package has come. Sometimes when a solution of sugar and water becomes super-saturated, from it precipitates a pure, delicious, and diabetes-inducing crystal of sweetness, induced by no more than the tap of a finger. So is occurring now, we believe, with numeric and visualization libraries for Ruby.”

MDArray main properties are:

  • Homogeneous multidimensional array, a table of elements (usually numbers), all of the same type, indexed by a tuple of positive integers;
  • Support for many linear algebra methods (see bellow);
  • Easy calculation for large numerical multi dimensional arrays;
  • Basic types are: boolean, byte, short, int, long, float, double, string, structure;
  • Based on JRuby, which allows importing Java libraries;
  • Operator: +,-,,/,%,*, >, >=, etc.;
  • Functions: abs, ceil, floor, truncate, is_zero, square, cube, fourth;
  • Binary Operators: &, |, ^, ~ (binary_ones_complement), <<, >>;
  • Ruby Math functions: acos, acosh, asin, asinh, atan, atan2, atanh, cbrt, cos, erf, exp, gamma, hypot, ldexp, log, log10, log2, sin, sinh, sqrt, tan, tanh, neg;
  • Boolean operations on boolean arrays: and, or, not;
  • Fast descriptive statistics from Parallel Colt (complete list found bellow);
  • Easy manipulation of arrays: reshape, reduce dimension, permute, section, slice, etc.;
  • Support for reading and writing NetCDF-3 files;
  • Reading of two dimensional arrays from CSV files (mainly for debugging and simple testing purposes);
  • StatList: a list that can grow/shrink and that can compute Parallel Colt descriptive statistics;
  • Experimental lazy evaluation (still slower than eager evaluation).
