VB Programming

Does anyone know if VB can perform complex mathematical functions like matrices, polynomials, etc.?
If not which programming language would be best suited to develop a user interface that requires the analysis of mathematical functions like the ones mention above?

    VB can perform some complex functions like:
    - log(number) -> natural logatithm
    - sin / cos / tan(number) -> trigonometric functions (maybe there are also arcsin, arccos, arctan, sec, cosec, cotan)
    - exp(number) -> e^number
    - matricies or arrays -> dim Array(1 to 10, 1 to 10) as long -> creates an array 10x10 of long numbers. You can use vectors too: dim Array(1 to 10). I don't know if there are scalar and vector product, matricies product, etc, but it's not so hard to create the functions.
    For the rest (division of polynomes, lim, dy/dx, etc) you have to create functions.

    If you're looking for a good math software you can try Maple (I think it's now 9.0 or 10.0): it works with every operating system, it's quite simple and has good examples.

    Good luck
