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.
CacheGuard Appliance is an all-in-one OS appliance providing firewall, antivirus, caching, compression, bandwidth allocation, load balancing, reverse and forward proxy, high availability, Web application firewall, URL guarding, and more. It can be purchased as an OS to install on your server, as an OS to run in a virtual machine, or as a hardware appliance.
NLopt is a library for nonlinear optimization that allows one to select from a wide variety of optimization algorithms by changing a single parameter. Its features include both local and global optimization, unconstrained, bound-constrained, or nonlinear-inequality constrained problems, and optimization using function values only or using derivatives if they are available. It was initially begun as a wrapper around several existing optimization packages, but it now also includes original implementations of several algorithms for which no free code was available. It provides interfaces callable from C/C++, Fortran, Matlab, GNU Octave, Python, and GNU Guile.
DAE Tools is cross-platform equation-oriented process modelling, simulation, and optimization software. Various types of processes (lumped or distributed, steady-state or dynamic) can be modelled and optimized. They may range from very simple to those which require complex operating procedures. Equations can be ordinary or discontinuous, where discontinuities are automatically handled by the framework. Model reports containing all information about a model can be exported in XML MathML format, automatically creating high-quality documentation. The simulation results can be visualized, plotted, and/or exported into various formats.
AutoDiff.NET is a pure .NET library that allows a developer to easily compose functions symbolically and then automatically calculates the function's value and gradient at any given point. It can be very useful in conjunction with a gradients-based optimization library. It has been tested to work on Mono 2.10 on Linux and on .NET4 on Windows.
CSS Import Resolver resolves the @import url(...); statements in input CSS files (by replacing the @import statement with the actual content of the linked CSS) and creates a huge CSS output (written to STDOUT by default). Including the combined CSS in your Web pages will improve the performance of a site by avoiding additional HTTP roundtrips.
EO is a template-based, ANSI-C++ evolutionary computation library that helps you to write your own stochastic optimization algorithms quickly. Evolutionary algorithms form a family of algorithms inspired by the theory of evolution, and solve various problems. They evolve a set of solutions to a given problem in order to produce the best results. These are stochastic algorithms because they iteratively use random processes. The vast majority of these methods are used to solve optimization problems, and may be also called "metaheuristics". They are also ranked among computational intelligence methods, a domain close to artificial intelligence. With the help of EO, you can easily design evolutionary algorithms that will find solutions to virtually all kind of hard optimization problems, from continuous to combinatorial ones.
