# Math.NET Iridium (Discontinued)

Iridium is the numerical foundation of Math.NET, aiming to provide commonly used mathematical elements for scientific numerical computations. It offers the infrastructure for basic numerics, linear algebra, random generators and distributions, integral transformations, etc. Iridium is self-contained, it does not depend on external libraries like Intel MKL, BLAS or LAPACK.

Iridium is covered under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL), hence you may link to it and use it in both opensource and proprietary software projects.

**Math.NET Iiridium has been merged with dnAnalytics into Math.NET Numerics. Math.NET Numerics replaces both Iridium and dnAnalytics, Iridium is therefore discontinued.**
