Types of functions included in the
Nematrian Function Library
[this page  pdf  back links]
The Nematrian function library currently includes functions
covering the following topics. To view a list of functions in each category
please follow the relevant hyperlink.

Calculatortype
computations (e.g. ones you might find on a pocket calculator)

Cashflow
projections (including ones for carrying
out pension fund cash flow projections)

Charting (e.g.
plotting functions or statistical distributions)

Code
generation (to help users manipulate the Nematrian function library)

Complex
numbers (akin to Calculatortype
functions but accepting complex number inputs)

Dates (to
manipulate dates and times)

Derivative
pricing (e.g. to calculate BlackScholes option
pricing greeks)

Expression
evaluation (i.e. allowing calculation of complicated expressions)

Finance
(akin to those available through spreadsheets)

General / miscellaneous (functions not currently categorised
elsewhere)

Life
insurance (e.g. valuation of insurance exposures dependent on mortality
rates)

Markov
processes (e.g. estimating them, simulating them or analysing their ergodic
properties)

Mathematical
puzzles (e.g. solving Sudoku puzzles)

Matrices
(e.g. manipulating matrices and solving associated sets of linear equations)

Performance
measurement (including functions for manipulating peer group performance
data)

Portfolio
optimisation (including efficient frontier derivation and reverse
optimisation)

Probability
distributions (a comprehensive suite of functions for estimating and
manipulating a wide range of statistical probability distributions)

Risk
management functions (some more specific risk management functions not
otherwise classified elsewhere)

Set manipulation
(e.g. counting and deriving unions and intersections of sets)

Solvency II
(e.g. for calculating elements of its Standard Formula Solvency Capital
Requirement)

Sorting
(sorting or identifying the order of different types of array)

Special
functions (i.e. more sophisticated mathematical functions than are included
in Calculatortype
functions)

Statistics
(a wide range of functions relevant to statistics not otherwise covered elsewhere,
e.g. under Probability
distributions functions)

Strings (for
manipulating strings, e.g. replacing strings in other strings)

Trisegmented
Monte Carlo demonstrations (N.B. trisegmented Monte
Carlo is an approach for speeding up runtimes of simulation exercises)

Unit
conversions (from e.g. SI units to other
units used for physical measurement)

the Nematrian Online Toolkit please go to Complete Function
List.
The Nematrian function library also includes a range of
bespoke tools designed to meet specific client needs. These functions are not
publicly accessible.
