1. Overview

Provides wrapper for LibM, a 64bit software library (AMD) containing a collection of basic math functions and vector functions. Copy the file(s) to the binary folder of your .net code and rename it to libAMDLibM.dll to ensure that it can be found by Dodoni.MathLibrary.Native.LibM.

2. Dependencies

This assembly depends on

3. Main concepts and helpful code snippets

The Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) is used to dynamic link to this assembly. If specific features of this assembly are used which are not covered by the generic interface one has to add a reference to this assembly; in all other cases a reference to this assembly is optional. One may have a look in the unit test project of Dodoni.MathLibrary.Native.LibM; see API documentation for more information.

4. Important remarks

  • The LibM library is limited to 64 bit.
  • LibM does not support many Vector operations, even simple vector operations as for example element wise addition, subtraction etc. are not supported. In this cases a (slow) managed implementation is taken as a fall back solution. For that reason it is recommended to not use LibM in the framework yet.
