# Java lightweight mathematics and statistics components

Commons Math is a Java library of lightweight, self-contained mathematics

and statistics components.

.

Commons Math is made up of a small set of math/stat utilities addressing

programming problems like the ones in the list below:

- Computing means, variances and other summary statistics for a list of

numbers

- Fitting a line to a set of data points using linear regression

- Finding a smooth curve that passes through a collection of points

(interpolation)

- Fitting a parametric model to a set of measurements using least-squares

methods

- Solving equations involving real-valued functions (i.e. root-finding)

- Solving systems of linear equations

- Solving Ordinary Differential Equations

- Minimizing multi-dimensional functions

- Generating random numbers with more restrictions (e.g distribution, range)

than what is possible using the JDK

- Generating random samples and/or datasets that are "like" the data in an

input file

- Performing statistical significance tests

- Miscellaneous mathematical functions such as factorials, binomial

coefficients and "special functions" (e.g. gamma, beta functions)
