     About a year ago, I was working on a project. The project required many matrix operations, that time I really wished that I would find a class or a library with ready functions for matrix manipulations (like addition, inverse, multiplication, etc…) to use in Visual Basic. Unfortunately I could not find such a class, so I decided to write my own class, I called it "cMathLib" . This class gives the user the flexibility to work with matrices and do operations on them. The dimensions of the matrices are neither pre-specified nor limited. The code is highly optimized for fast operation. The code attached contains the class file called with a demonstration on how to use it. Opperations included in the class are : Add, Subtract, Determinant, Inverse, Transpose, Multiply, Print, MultiplyVectors,Magnitude of a Vector, scalar multiply, and scalar divide. I posted a similar code in Visual Basic 6 Zone two days ago and the reaction was too good to imagine, so I decided to post the VB.NET version of the code here. I really hope this class would be of any help to any of you who needs to work with matrix operations.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

I have noticed an error in the Transpose routine when used in non-square matrices.
Public Shared Function Transpose(ByVal Mat(,) As Double) As Double(,)
Dim Tr_Mat(,) As Double
Dim i, j, Rows, Cols As Integer

On Error GoTo Error_Handler

Find_R_C(Mat, Rows, Cols)

ReDim Tr_Mat(Cols, Rows)

' error in the original software
'For i = 0 To Cols
' For j = 0 To Rows
' Tr_Mat(j, i) = Mat(i, j)
' Next j
'Next i

For i = 0 To Rows
For j = 0 To Cols
Tr_Mat(j, i) = Mat(i, j)
Next j
Next i

Return Tr_Mat

Err.Raise("5028", , "In order to do this operation values must be assigned to the matrix !!")

End Function
