Internationally acclaimed Tsinghua University, reportedly chosen by the majority of China's top ranking college applicants and whose prestigious graduates include both the current President and Vice President of China, has signed a cooperate agreement for a campus-wide license with Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG), a not-for-profit organization that collaborates with world-leading researchers and practitioners in academia and industry, and offers what are arguably the most rigorously tested and documented numeric algorithms in the world.
Tsinghua University's licensing agreement includes the NAG Library, which can be used from many environments including C, C++, Fortran, MATLAB, Excel, and parallel or multicore platforms, and the NAG Fortran compiler..
"We are very pleased to introduce NAG products into Tsinghua and believe that this cooperation will effectively improve Tsinghua's research environment," said Edward Chou, NAG's general manager for Greater China.
Chou continues, "Tsinghua University's top tier researchers and students should be equipped with first-class of R & D tools. NAG's mathematical and statistical algorithms--in terms of the scope of functionalities, accuracy and performance, are the most superior numeric computing software one can find worldwide. In past years, because of budget shortfalls, scientists in China...
