Abstract:

This report summarizes the activities enabled by an XDATA effort which includes a series of papers, the explosive growth of the Julia language, and a remarkable amount of software development. At the time of writing this report, there have been a near 4,000,000 downloads of the Julia Language, several textbooks authored by faculty worldwide based on the Julia language, and any number of classrooms using the Julia language. At the early start of the XDATA effort , Python was extremely popular, as it remains today, but even large commercial companies such as Google are starting to understand Pythons shortcomings. At the same time, libraries written in Julia remain callable from other popular languages such as Python. A remarkable amount of documentation that is directly or indirectly a tributable to this work can be found on such pages as 1. The Julia Lab web page at MIT httpsjulia.mit.edu 2. The Julia Language webpage httpsjulialang.org and 3. the authors MIT web page httpmath.mit.eduedelman
