Subject: Probability distribution library for .NET

Probability distribution library for .NET

DCDFLIB is a popular library for evaluating the CDF (cumulative
distribution function) and related functions for some of the most
commonly used probability distributions. This library, in Fortran and
C versions, was developed by Barry Brown, John Venier, and Dan
Serachitopol at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. Gene Harris has now made
a Managed C++ version of this library in order to make it easy to use
from languages such as C# built on top of Microsoft's .NET framework.

The original DCDFLIB Fortran and C source is available here:

Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, will
evaluate applicants for the faculty positions at KAUST. However, KAUST will be
responsible for all hiring decisions, appointment offers, recruiting, and
explanations of employment benefits. The recruited faculty will be employed by
KAUST, not by Stanford. Faculty members in Applied Mathematics and Computer
Science recruited by KAUST before September 2009 will be hosted at Stanford
University as Visiting Fellows until KAUST opens in September 2009.
