CMC stands for or Carboxymethyl cellulose.  In short, it is the chemical version of Gum Tragacanth.  It looks exactly the same.

CMC tends to work a little bit faster than gum tragacanth and is also a little bit cheaper as it is a chemical version of the real thing.

Tylose so is effectively the same thing as CMC.  It works in the same way and is again a chemical version.  It is usually again cheaper than Gum Tragacanth due to its chemical nature.  

In essence, they all do the same job.  They can be added to fondant in order to make it easier to model with. They also make it dry more quickly.

Ratio: 1 Tsp of CMC for 250grammes of sugar paste.

CMC (Carboxy methyl cellulose) is a food additive that is used as a thickening, emulsifying, anti-caking, and preservative agent.  CMC is used for stabilizing ice creams and is largely used in baking preparations to add "body" to the food. For this all you have to do is mix the CMC Powder in water and then add it to the ice cream mix. It is non toxic & therefore very suitable for use in food formulation.
