Shecky over at Math Frolic has been getting antsy. One blog isn't enough for him. Now there's Math Tango! From the welcome post: WELCOME Math-Frolickers!… MathTango is intended (and it'll be a bit of an experiment) to be the new residence for longer, more original entries that were occasionally posted at Math-Frolic (including book reviews, [...]

In a recent article, Citing software in research papers, I discussed how to cite various software packages. One of the commentators suggested that I should contact The Mathworks if I wanted to know how to cite MATLAB. I did this and asked for permission to blog the result. This is what they suggested: To cite [...]

The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) are principally known for their numerical library but they also offer products such as a MATLAB toolbox and a Fortran compiler. My employer, The University of Manchester, has a full site license for most of NAG’s stuff where it is heavily used by both our students and researchers. While at a recent software [...]
