With finaquant® protos (non-commercial) or finaquant® calcs (commercial) a .NET developer has everything she needs for analytical table computations and database connection (i.e. storing and reading complete data tables).
Sometimes, tables need to be broken down into matrices for detail processing. As shown in our related forum post, the available matrix and vector functions in finaquant libraries can easily be extended with other numerical .NET libraries like ILNumerics that offer more specific functions for statistics and optimization.
Reporting (presenting data visually in well-formatted layouts and pdf files) is the only missing link. Luckily, basic reporting functionality is built in Visual Studio and .NET framework. Following video demonstrates how a simple report with a parameter can be created with ReportViewer:
This article demonstrates how changes in commission amounts can be simulated by varying selected table-valued inputs. In example presented here, the math software Matlab is connnected with the Calculation Engine implemented with finaquant® calcs in order to:
Control the variation of selected inputs; Sales and Commission Scales.
Reporting: Visualize the resultant total commissions with plot diagrams.
Both of our .NET libraries finaquant® protos (non-commercial) and finaquant® calcs (commercial) contain Matrix and Vector functions in addition to Table Functions. In fact, table functions are higher level constructs that are based on matrix and vector functions of the library.
You may find examples for Matrix and Vector functions in the Visual Studio file FinaquantCalcsStarter (or FinaquantProtosStarter) that you can download at the corresponding product page (see related downloads).
Parallel to field types of tables (text attribute, numeric attribute, key figure) there are three types of matrices and vectors:
Here are some examples for creating matrices, and making operations with them: Continue reading →
