Who we are and what we do
The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) provides expertise in numerical engineering, by delivering high-quality computational software, consulting services and high performance computing services. For over four decades NAG have collaborated with world-leading researchers in academia and industry to create powerful, reliable and flexible software which is relied on by tens of thousands of individual users, as well as numerous independent software vendors. As a not-for-profit company, NAG reinvests surpluses into the research and development of its products, services, staff and its collaborations.
NAG was founded in 1970 as an inter-University collaborative venture combining the talents of many globally renowned mathematicians. In 1971 NAG developed the first mathematical software library - the NAG Library, which, over the next four decades, has evolved to become the largest commercially available collection of high quality mathematical and statistical algorithms. NAG's commitment to testing and quality remains steadfast. Alongside the Library, NAG develops the NAG Compiler. NAG's products are expertly and directly supported by NAG's technical team.
The breadth and depth of expertise within NAG's technical team of mathematicians and computer scientists is used to provide HPC support to supercomputing centres around the world. NAG HPC Services provides procurement advice, consulting services and people with expert computational science engineering skills either onsite at client premises or supports users from NAG offices.
NAG Numerical Services help organizations find and implement the optimum numerical computation solutions from teaching the best ways to solve complex problems or verifying that older applications remain valid and optimal for the latest processors and platforms. NAG can be used to provide bespoke training courses and works with teams at organizations to impart skills and techniques that will help solve your numerical problems.
Application and software organizations embed NAG software and services when demand dictates the need for analytical techniques such as modelling, forecasting, optimization and data mining via the NAG Partnership Program.
Similarly, the world's leading computer hardware manufacturers work closely with NAG to ensure that NAG software is optimized for their customers. Additionally, NAG Numerical Services have been enlisted to help develop some externally produced core numerical libraries.
NAG's ethos is, collaborative, consultative, consensus-based, principled and transparent. It was founded on collaboration and continues to partner with expert individuals and organizations from industry and academia all over the world including:
