oj! Algorithms or ojAlgo, is open source Java library for mathematics,[1][2] linear algebra and optimisation. It was first released in 2003 [3] and is 100% pure Java source code and free from external dependencies. Its feature set make it particularly suitable for use within the financial domain.

Capabilities[edit]

  • Linear Algebra in Java
    • "high performance" multi-threaded feature-complete linear algebra package.
  • Optimisation (mathematical programming) including LP, QP and MIP solvers.
  • Finance related code (certainly usable in other areas as well):
    • Extensive set of tools to work with time series - CalendarDateSeries, CoordinationSet & PrimitiveTimeSeries.
    • Random numbers and stochastic processes - even multi-dimensional such - and the ability to drive these to do things like Monte Carlo simulations.
    • A collection of Modern Portfolio Theory related classes - FinancePortfolio and its subclasses the Markowitz and Black-Litterman model implementations.
    • Ability to download data from Yahoo Finance and Google Finance.

Usage Example[edit]

Example of Singular Value Decomposition (SVD):

SingularValue<Double> svd = SingularValueDecomposition.make(matA);
svd.compute(matA);
 
MatrixStore<Double> U = svd.getQ1();
MatrixStore<Double> S = svd.getD();
MatrixStore<Double> V = svd.getQ2();

Example of matrix multiplication:

PrimitiveDenseStore result = FACTORY.makeZero(matA.getRowDim(), matB.getColDim());
result.fillByMultiplying(matA, matB);
