I have some questions about numbers in Mathematica:

  • Does Mathematica work with datatypes like int, long, short or byte in C#?
  • What is the biggest number that Mathematica can calculate?

Your first Q (since i'm a C noob): Mathematica c# and the Documentation Center Types of Numbers

Your second Q;

$MaxMachineNumber is the largest machine-precision number that can be used on a particular computer system.

$MaxMachineNumber

(*
1.79769*10^308
*)

$MaxNumber gives the maximum arbitrary-precision number that can be represented on a particular computer system.

$MaxNumber

(*
1.605216761933662*10^1355718576299609
*)

Infos relevant for

"10.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (December 4, 2014)"

with 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, so this type of Q/A depends on your System anyway.
