Hi, I want to use Math.Net library for a comercial software. Does the Math.Net license let me do this? On the first page of the project I can see three diferent license types: (MIT/X11LGPL & GPL): http://www.mathdotnet.com/Default.aspx  . How it should be interpreted?

I speak under correction. Math.Net consists of several libraries.

Most of Math.Net seems to be under the MIT Licence.:

Best to see which portions you are using:

http://www.mathdotnet.com/About.aspx

only Math.NET Yttrium and Math.NET Classic are under the 'copyleft' GPL and one has been discontinued and the other not yet released.

(Don't use the link above though for source code of the latest Math.Net Numerics though ...Codeplex or github is more up to date on that project and I think you are here for that project.) 

I think math.net numerics is all under MIT or similar permissive licences. e.g. Boost licence

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boost_Software_License

Hope that helps.

Confirmed, Math.NET Numerics is fully available under the MIT/X11 license and thus explicitly allows usage in closed source projects (can be commercial).
