System.Numerics Namespace

Contains numeric types that complement the numeric primitives, such as Byte, Double, and Int32, that are defined by .NET.

Classes

BitOperations

Provides utility methods for intrinsic bit-twiddling operations. The methods use hardware intrinsics when available on the underlying platform; otherwise, they use optimized software fallbacks.

Vector

Provides a collection of static methods for creating, manipulating, and otherwise operating on generic vectors.

Remarks

This namespace includes the following types:

  • The BigInteger structure, which is a nonprimitive integral type that supports arbitrarily large integers. An integral primitive such as Byte or Int32 includes a MinValue and a MaxValue property, which define the lower bound and upper bound supported by that data type. In contrast, the BigInteger structure has no lower or upper bound, and can contain the value of any integer.

  • The Complex structure, which represents a complex number. A complex number is a number in the form a + bi, where a is the real part, and b is the imaginary part.

  • The SIMD-enabled vector types, which include Vector2, Vector3, Vector4, Matrix3x2, Matrix4x4, Plane, and Quaternion.
