What is Julia?

Julia is designed for parallelism, and provides built-in primitives for parallel computing at every level: instruction level parallelism, multi-threading and distributed computing. The Celeste.jl project achieved 1.5 PetaFLOP/s on the Cori supercomputer at NERSC using 650,000 cores.

What is the scientific ecosystem in Julia?

With a set of highly enthusiastic developers and maintainers, the scientific ecosystem in Julia continues to grow rapidly. The Julia data ecosystem provides DataFrames.jl to work with datasets, and perform common data manipulations.

Can Julia be used in other languages?

Julia has foreign function interfaces for C, Fortran, C++, Python, R, Java, and many other languages. Julia can also be embedded in other programs through its embedding API. Specifically, Python programs can call Julia using PyJulia.

What services does Julia offer?

Julia also offers a number of domain-specific ecosystems, such as in biology (BioJulia), operations research (JuMP Dev), image processing (JuliaImages), quantum physics (QuantumBFS), nonlinear dynamics (JuliaDynamics), quantitative economics (QuantEcon), astronomy (JuliaAstro) and ecology (EcoJulia).

What is a Julia language?

Julia is a general-purpose programming language, while also originally designed for numerical/technical computing. It is also useful for low-level systems programming, as a specification language, and for web programming at both server and client side. According to the official website, the main features of the language are:

What is Julia used for?

^ The Julia Language (official website). General Purpose [..] Julia lets you write UIs, statically compile your code, or even deploy it on a webserver. ^ Green, Todd (10 August 2018). Low-Level Systems Programming in High-Level Julia.

What is the origin of the name Julia?

Julia is usually a feminine given name. It is a Latinate feminine form of the name Julio and Julius. (For further details on etymology, see the Wiktionary entry Julius .) The given name Julia had been in use throughout Late Antiquity (e.g. Julia of Corsica) but became rare during the Middle Ages, and was revived only with the Italian Renaissance.

Is Julia a good language for numerical analysis?

While it is a general-purpose language and can be used to write any application, many of its features are well suited for numerical analysis and computational science. Distinctive aspects of Julias design include a type system with parametric polymorphism in a dynamic programming language; with multiple dispatch as its core programming paradigm.
