I think, the best is a programming language like FORTRAN, with ready libraries when necessary,
and as libraries may be considered your interpreted languages above. How many of these interpreters
are easily extensible with a compiled programming language?
BTW, there other languages being used: Julia, J, S-Lang:
It was just a general question from me to stay "current". In my good old time it was "matlab with toolboxes".
But I see currently python is more popular for statistics,symbolic&numerical math. It has some advantages as you don't need to learn a "domain specific language".
