It is almost like maths.It does seem powerful, but it's much more verbose than math.I tend to measure power of a language in terms of how much I can get done in the least number of characters (because my typing speed and accuracy is crap).So you would like APL very much? I think C++ is too cryptic and technical, a mix between pyhton and R would be something I'd like best for numerical math.How did you guess that I like APL? ;-)One of the features I like about math and APL (in contrast to C and most other languages) is the clear demarcation between system atoms (core functions, operators, and connectives) and user-defined atoms (named variables and functions). C et al build everything from ASCII characters which means that at a glance it's not possible to tell which tokens in a line of code are user-created variables, user-created functions, or reserved words.
