Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) Software Training

The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) is a UK-based company founded in 1970. It specializes in providing high-quality mathematical and statistical libraries which are extensively used in scientific computation. Major products from NAG include:

  • NAG Fortran Library
  • NAG C Library
  • NAG Toolbox for MATLAB
  • NAG .NET Library
  • NAG Fortran Compiler/Builder

Using NAG in HKU

NAG products are available to all HKU staff and students under a site license agreement (see ITS Newsletter No. 150). Many HKU researchers have already applied the NAG mathematical and statistical libraries in disciplines such as physical and medical sciences, engineering and business analysis. Users can access the NAG products on the HPC Gridpoint system, or install them on campus PCs. Further details on NAG products can be found here.
