Hi all, I'm investigating the usage of Mathematica in a project. We have complex algorithms/functions that we need to evaluate at runtime. Is it possible with Mathematica to just write an expression in plain english and call a Mathematica library to execute it and get the result from a .NET environment ? For instance, writing something like Mathematica.Execute ("sqrt(2) * log(Pi)"). Is it possible to precompile an algorithm or a function into a .NET assembly ? For instance I would like to compile the formula sqrt(2) * log(Pi) into an assembly that I could call at runtime. Which products are needed for this ? Do I need the .NET/link ? Christian
