( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Can't resist to give a quick answer to your question:
Being a physicist, I have indeed used Mathematica, though I generally prefer Maple for most stuff since I like the interface better. As you said, it is a question of the complexity of the optimization. I don't think you need the full power of Mathematica for this, though I haven't thought it through. If it's an If I recall correctly, the first reply in this thread pointed to a good, scientific discussion of the subject.
The reason I pointed at those Math:: modules was because before engaging in hairy XS/Inline::C library wrapping, it's probably a better idea to try with what's availlable already. If that's not good enough by a small margin, it's probably a better idea to extend what's on CPAN than to roll one's own. That doesn't mean I consider Mathematica an inadequate tool for the job.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
