[20] Distinctive aspects of Julia's design include a type system with parametric polymorphism and types in a fully dynamic programming language and multiple dispatch as its core programming paradigm . It allows concurrent , parallel and distributed computing , and direct calling of C and Fortran libraries without glue code . Julia is garbage-collected , [21] uses eager evaluation and includes efficient libraries for floating- point calculations, linear algebra , random number generation , and regular expression matching.

Many libraries are available, and some of them (e.g. for fast Fourier transforms ) were previously bundled with Julia.

Shah , and Alan Edelman , who set out to create a free language that was both high-level and fast. On 14 February 2012 the team launched a website with a blog post explaining the language's mission. [23] Karpinski said of the name "Julia": "There's no good reason, really. It just seemed like a pretty name." [24] Bezanson said he chose the name on the recommendation of a friend.
