Numerical integration

The F#.NET Journal just published an article about numerical methods:
"Definite integrals can be calculated approximately using a variety of techniques known collectively as numerical integration algorithms. The ability to calculate definite integrals has many practical applications including solving ordinary differential equations. This article describes several basic algorithms for numerical integration and a technique that allows these algorithms to be applied to both finite and infinite limits..."

Simulating a concurrent system

The F#.NET Journal just published an article about concurrent programming:
"Distributed concurrency can be complicated and, consequently, there can be great value in having a complete working prototype to study. The simplicity of asynchronous agents in F# makes them ideal for writing simulation code. This article describes the design of a simple concurrent system that distributes incoming messages between two separate concurrent systems in order to duplicate subsequent processing in order to provide fault tolerance..."
