wasora is a computational tool designed to aid a cognizant expert, whether an engineer, scientist, technician, or geek, to analyze complex systems by solving mathematical problems by means of a high-level plain-text input file containing algebraic expressions, data for function interpolation, differential equations, and output instructions amongst other facilities. At first glance, it may look like another high-level interpreted programming language, but it should be seen as a syntactically-sweetened way to ask a computer to perform a certain mathematical calculation. For example, the famous Lorenz system may be solved by writing the three differential equations in a human friendly plain text file.
GTKMathplot is an interactive plotting program based on GTK+ and the Cairo graphics library. It can display bidimensional curves, tridimensional curves, and surfaces from Cartesian or parametric equations describing the mathematical objects you would like to visualize. It is designed to be intuitive for high school students with good mathematical knowledge. University students of engineering, physics, mathematics, or natural sciences should need no explanation at all to start using it proficiently.
QMentat helps you practice mental arithmetic. It uses arbitrary-length fixed point arithmetic, and can handle any size numbers, only limited by the size of your screen (and in the case of division with an integer result, the speed at which the number can be factored). It is also quite configurable, allowing you to tailor the questions to your needs.
SCaVis is an environment for scientific computation, data analysis, and data visualization designed for scientists, engineers, and students. The program can be used for function and data plotting in 2D and 3D, histograms, statistical analysis, and symbolic calculations using the Matlab/Octave high-level interpreted language.
librsb is a library for sparse matrix computations featuring the Recursive Sparse Blocks (RSB) matrix format. This format allows cache-efficient and multithreaded (that is, shared memory parallel) operations on large sparse matrices. The most common operations necessary to iterative solvers are available (matrix-vector multiplication, triangular solution, rows/columns scaling, diagonal extraction/setting, blocks extraction, norm computation, formats conversion). The RSB format is especially well-suited for symmetric and transposed multiplication variants. On these variants, librsb has been found to be faster than Intel MKL's implementation for CSR. Most numerical kernels code is auto-generated, and the supported numerical types can be chosen by the user at buildtime. librsb implements the Sparse BLAS standard, as specified in the BLAS Forum documents.
PyParticles is a particle simulation toolbox entirely written in Python. It simulates a particle-by-particle model with the most popular integrations methods, including Euler, Runge Kutta, and Midpoint. It represents the results on an OpenGL or Matplotlib plot, and offers an easy-to-use API.
