One of the favored langugages for scientific and math development is Python. I will go briefly into why this is, why I think Ruby can also fill this niche, give an overview of a library I am porting from another language to Ruby, and look at some gems that allow Ruby to be used for high performance computing and how they could be improved. I think that Ruby is under-represented in this niche, and that working on these issues could open up new markets for Ruby developers.
