I want to perform a scientific calculation in my vb.net project..
I don't want code for calculator.
I have to perform operation of
x^y
where x & y both are very large integers
but it's showing me overflow in code so I want scientific calculation.

You can use the type System.Numerics.BigInteger instead:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.numerics.biginteger.aspx[^].
 
Only you should understand that such a simple operation as power function can easily create a result depleting your system memory or fail just because you don't have enough memory. Smile | :)

Well, you can take the source code from System.Numerics from Mono:
