Hasard is a pseudo-random number generator (PRNG) library. It includes multiple engines (algorithms): Park-Miller, Mersenne Twister, Linux device (/dev/urandom or /dev/random), and more. It has a simple but powerful API. For example, a PRNG seed can be generated using strong entropy (using a hardware random number generator like /dev/random on Linux). The library is written in C, and a Python binding is available. The word "hasard" is the French word for "randomness" or "chance".
LaserCalc is a tool to calculate optical paths and resonators based on Gaussian beam matrix optics. Optical elements such as lenses or distances can be set up to an optical path. An input beam parameter (z & w value) as well as the wavelength can be set. The programm calculates the propagation of the beam along the path. For an optical resonator, the TEM00 Eigenmode of a given wavelength is automatically calculated. Furthermore, a stability parameter is derived.
GATE is a software package dedicated to numerical simulations in medical imaging and radiotherapy. It supports simulations of Emission Tomography (Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)), Computed Tomography (CT), and Radiotherapy experiments. It makes it easy to use existing Monte Carlo simulation packages according to the requirements of a simulation. It allows accurate description of time-dependent phenomena such as source or detector movement and source decay kinetics. It includes well-validated physics models, geometry modeling tools accommodating complex scanner geometries, models for detector electronic response, and efficient visualization utilities. Modelling of CT scans and calculation of dose can also be performed.
Mordred is a tool for mechanical engineers to calculate the movements and forces of a mechanical system. For the existence of a solution, it is necessary that the system be statically statically determinate. The results can be logged to a textual report, and can be displayed graphically. You define your mechanism graphically, for the most part, but can define your forces and coordinates textually in order to reach full precision. It requires Java 6 in order to run.
The purpose of the glideinWMS is to provide a simple way to access the Grid resources. To achieve this without reinventing the wheel, glideinWMS is a Glidein-based WMS (Workload Management System) that works on top of Condor. Once setup, final users can submit regular Condor jobs to the local queue and the glidein factory will provide the computing resources behind the scenes. From the final user point of view, the Condor pool just magically grows and shrinks as needed.
