Java for Numerical Computing: A Tour Through Issues and Directions in the Use and Evolution of Java for Numerical Computing
James Gosling, Sun Microsystems

Track: Keynote
Date: Thursday, February 06
Time: 9:15am - 10:00am
Location: California Ballroom

Although Java has become successful in handheld devices and commercial server applications, it has garnered only a small following in the numerical and high-performance computing worlds. This is unsurprising, as it lacks some key features, such as a convenient notation for user-defined arithmetic operators, which are highly valued in these areas. Furthermore, the performance characteristics of the VM, which are desirable for numerical computations, have not received much attention. Despite this, there have been some notable successes. Gosling covers the history of issues and directions of Java for numerical computing, with a look forward to future directions.
