Inspector_dllI have installed the latest version of MathNet on Visual Studio using the NuGet Package Manager. I've also, copied the MathNet.Numerics.dll to an Plugins folder in the Unity editor. Yet it still gives a compiler error: error CS0234: The type or namespace name 'Distributions' does not exist in the namespace 'MathNet.Numerics' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

Does anyone know how to solve this or knows a similar package that works with Unity?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Have you had any luck with this? Specifically curious if this library works in Unity Games deployed to Android or iOS. \$\endgroup\$ Jan 20, 2021 at 19:52
  • \$\begingroup\$ Honestly I don't remember but I don't think I got it working. I think I just used another package, from unity asset store. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Try put it in Assets/Plugins and then maybe you need to add a reference to it in your asmdef file. I did something like that before. \$\endgroup\$

I've been able to install NuGet packages (and in particular MathNet.Numerics) for Unity using this Plugin: https://github.com/GlitchEnzo/NuGetForUnity

The instructions are in the repo's README, but the following steps should work:

  1. add the NugetForUnity.unitypackage to your Unity Project.
  2. Open the NuGet > Manage NuGet Packages Window
  3. Search the MathNet.Numerics and install
