comment Basic software libraries for numerical analysis using modern programming languages?
Thanks, but the focus of my question is more on languages and environments that are intuitive for mathematicians who intend to implement algorithms - languages that provide a better infrastructure than, for example, C. "Infrastructure" is meant is a couple of different ways here, both "code for housekeeping, GUI, networking", level of abstraction (e.g. pointer handling, OOP), easy of build and deployment etc. My question is less about what someone interested in high performance computing needs to focus on.

Thanks, I infer from your answer that while it may not be "entirely clear" what I am looking for, it is clear enough to provide useful information :-) Could you expand your footnote about Fortran a bit? (Literature, development environments, online references, experiences?)

Sarcasm is cheap, but I share your frustration. This is not the place to indulge in it, though.

Thanks! Yes, I wondered if anyone would bother to write virtual machines (.NET or Java) for high performance architectures.

Thanks for your answer, I changed the "boundary conditions are equal" part in my question.

comment Basic software libraries for numerical analysis using modern programming languages?
Sure, this question is not about language wars, that is, I'm not interested in one either. However, I am still interested if there are software projects under way that would profit from a higher level of abstraction compared to C. Especially "glue code" or "housekeeping code" (io, testing, logging, exception handling etc.) is much easier to write and maintain in higher level languages. This becomes interesting for big and long living software projects like Sage (or, much more, for global climate models), compared to the "hack'n forget an algorithm for a single paper" - kind of coding.
