Harry is a small tool for comparing strings and measuring their similarity. It implements several common distance and kernel functions for strings, as well as some exotic similarity measures. For example, Harry supports the Levenshtein (edit) distance, the Jaro-Winkler distance, and the compression distance. Harry is implemented using OpenMP, so its runtime scales linearly with the number of available CPU cores. Efficient implementations and effective caching speed comparison of strings.
Salad (short for Letter Salad) is an efficient and flexible implementation of the well-known anomaly detection method Anagram by Wang et al. (RAID 2006). Salad is based on n-gram models, that is, data is represented as all of its substrings of length n. During training these n-grams are stored in a Bloom filter. This enables the detector to represent a large number of n-grams in little memory and still being able to efficiently access the data. Salad extends Anagram by allowing various n-gram types, a 2-class version of the detector for classification, and various model analysis modes.
yacts, yet another continuous time simulator, uses J+ to interpret scripts, defining systems of ordinary differential equations, which it solves. J+ is a functional non-imperative simulation language with lazy evaluation, based on the J programming language, a dialect of APL. A program in J+ is a collection of (possibly functional) J assignment statements, just like a set of formulae on a sheet of paper. The interpreter, implemented as a software library, knows the interdependencies between these formulae and is able to compute any of the defined quantities with minimal effort, keeping track of the values which were already computed. The driver program (such as yacts) may ask the interpreter to compute certain quantities and set the values for others (propagating the changes to dependents).
openEMS is an electromagnetic field solver using the FDTD method. It employs a fully 3D Cartesian and cylindrical coordinate graded mesh. Matlab (or Octave) is used as an easy and flexible scripting interface. Advanced Features include: multi-threading, SIMD (SSE), and MPI support for high speed FDTD.
openPLM is a Web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) application. It provides a configuration management system that manages all kind of files and data as documents in a product structure. It supports documents, parts, BOMs, part-document links, electronic signatures for objects, revision management, check in and check out for all files, plain text search using the Xapian engine, navigation between objects using Graphviz, and user management that allows sponsorship, delegation, and rights. Plug-ins are available for Thunderbird, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, FreeCAD, and Gedit.
MakeHuman is software for the modelling of three-dimensional humanoid characters. Features that make this software unique include a highly intuitive GUI and a high quality mesh, optimized to work in subdivision surface mode (for example, Zbrush). Using MakeHuman, a photo-realistic character can be modelled in less than 2 minutes.
wgms3d is a full-vectorial electromagnetic waveguide mode solver. It computes the modes of dielectric waveguides at a specified wavelength using a second-order finite-difference method. The waveguide cross section may consist of several adjacent regions of constant refractive index (i.e., step-index profiles). Dielectric interfaces do not have to be aligned with the discretization grid; they may be arbitrarily slanted or curved. The entire waveguide may be curved along the propagation direction. Leakage and curvature losses can be computed using Perfectly Matched Layers as absorbing boundaries.
