Flex/Actionscript Math Library (as3mathlib)

Summary

The Flex/Actionscript Math Library (as3mathlib), an update of the wisASLibrary, is intended to provide a numerical analysis toolkit for the Actionscript/Flex programming environment.

This library includes support for

  • Geometric Objects and Intersection calculations
  • Integral and Differential equation calculations
  • Bezier, Quadric, Polynomial, Complex, Vector and Matrix calculations
  • Symbolic expression parsing

Goals

Our two, no three primary goals – our five primary goals are:

  • Correctness: the library is accompanied by a complete set of regression tests.
  • Clarity of code: the routines are well commented and follow best practices of software engineering.
  • Modularity: In most cases users will need only a few routines out of the package. To the extent possible, this should require bringing in a correspondingly small portion of the library.
  • Flexibility: A few, general, easily understood routines are more desirable than a comprehensive deathmarch through advanced numerical methods. Think “[http://www.nr.com/ Numerical Recipes]”, not “[http://www.netlib.org/lapack/ Lapack]”.
  • Performance: Actionscript will never be a premiere [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-performance_computing high-performance computing] environment. With that said, the library should support prototyping applications calculations of modest scope. Routines that don’t meet this modest standard won’t be included.
