Abstract PV-WAVE is an array oriented fourth-generation programming language used by engineers, scientists, researchers, business analysts and software developers to build and deploy 'Visual Data Analysis' applications.

These applications let users manipulate and visualize complex or extremely large technical datasets to detect and display patterns, trends, anomalies and other vital information.

Data Source and Visualization Options --

PV-WAVE allows users to obtain data from multiple sources and offers many options to visualize data.

Also, since PV-WAVE includes a sophisticated set of analysis routines based on the IMSL Libraries (see below…), it provides more than three (3) decades of confidence and reliability unmatched by other packages.

Additional PV-WAVE features include image and signal processing, data import and export, 3-D surface, plot, histogram, contour, animation, color editor and a database table display.

Engineering & Technical Applications --

PV-WAVE helps scientists and engineers analyze and visualize all types of data, from simple to complicated, from small to large datasets, from varied sources including proprietary formats.

Business Applications --

PV-WAVE images bring business data to life, providing analysts and decision-makers the tools needed to uncover opportunities, market trends and competitive threats.

Areas where Visual Numerics customers use PV-WAVE to perform visual data analysis include --

Test Engineering; Flight Test Engineering; Medical Imaging; Satellite Ground Stations; Meteorology; Time Series Analysis; Profitability Analysis;

Predictive Modeling; Patient Diagnostics; Budget Forecasting; Trend Analysis; and Biological Modeling.

New features and capabilities in PV-WAVE 9.0 include the following --

Integration of the IMSL C Library versions 5.5 and 6.0. Provides new algorithms including:

1) Auto_ARIMA for advanced forecasting;

2) Neural Network (NN) engine for data mining and forecasting;

3) High Performance Linear Programming Optimizer;

4) Differential Equations Package;

5) Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator;

6) Non-linear Programming;

7) Cluster Analysis;

8) Design of Experiments; and

9) Finite Difference.

New Eclipse Plug-In --

With PV-WAVE 9.0 Visual Numerics has included a pre-release version of a PV-WAVE plug-in for Eclipse.

The plug-in allows users to create projects, edit and debug their PV- WAVE programs within a single environment.

The manufacturer invites you to use the plug-in and welcomes any feedback you may have.

Note: A fully supported version of the plug-in will be available in a future PV-WAVE release.

OpenMP support for Windows XP (32 and 64 bit) -- Offers higher performance for PV-WAVE array operations on Windows.

Fast radial basis functions -- Radial basis interpolation algorithm that accommodates general datasets.

Expanded Platform Support --

1) Oracle (Linux 32 and 64 bit, Solaris 64 bit);

2) Windows XP (64 bit).

New Tutorial and Installation Guide.

IMSL Libraries --

The IMSL Numerical Libraries have been the cornerstone of high- performance and desktop computing as well as predictive analytics applications in science, technical and business environments for well over three decades.

These embeddable mathematical and statistical algorithms, written in C, C#/.NET, JAVA™, and FORTRAN, are used in a broad range of applications -- from programs that help airplanes fly to allowing people to predict the weather, to those that enable innovative ways to study the human genome as well as applications that predict stock market behavior and provide risk management and portfolio optimization.

The IMSL Libraries can also be used from Python using PyIMSL Studio or the PyIMSL wrappers.

Its robust, accurate, reliable mathematical and statistical library provides functionality in a wide range of numerical computing areas including:

Optimization; FFT's; Interpolation; Differential equations; Correlation; Regression; Time series analysis; and many more.

Programmers at major corporations, research laboratories and academic institutions have used the IMSL Library tools to build software applications in fields including engineering, research and development, financial engineering, physics, business analysis, data mining, biotechnology, plus many more.

Developers using the IMSL Libraries find significant benefits in the products ability to accelerate development time, reduce coding hassle, improve quality, and reduce development costs.
