San Le's Free Computational Electromagnetics (SLFCEM) is a package of scientific software for use in computational electromagnetics. Command-line driven calculation engines are separate from the GUI components and can be used independently. It includes two of the basic finite elements types, 4 node quad and 3 node triangle. Each element type has a unique GUI specific to the element. Modal analysis for solving the waveguide problem is done using edge based elements. There is also code for generating edge connectivity. The algorithm used is a combination of Lanczos for tridiagonalization of the system, as well as QR to calculate the resulting eigenvalues. In addition to skyline storage and LU decomposition, calculations are also made using the Conjugate Gradient Method.
ArtTk is a graphic library based on Java/Swing offering an open development toolkit intended specifically for scientific and technical applications. It provides a set of widgets and functional modules a set of support modules (helpers) permitting dynamic definition of menus and tool bars from simple XML configured files, and supporting tooltips, icons, action commands, etc.; a very adaptable generic desktop, facilitating the assembly of Swing components in a specialized GUI; an extended Grid layout to simplify the development of advanced scientific applications; and a set of scientific and technical widgets, such as a dynamic memory footprint monitor, simple key-values based fields editors, a generic color gradient editor, etc.
GraphInsight is visualization software that lets you explore graph data through high quality interactive representations. Data exploration and knowledge extraction from graphs is of great interest nowadays: knowledge is disseminated in social networks, and services are powered by cloud computing platforms. Data miners deal with graphs every day. Humans are extremely good at identifying patterns and outliers. Interacting visually with your data can give you better intuition and higher confidence in what you are looking for.
Novembre is an extensible tool for analysis and visualization of topographic and spectroscopic data. It supports the RHK, WinSPM, Nanonis, and Createc file formats, but any other format can be added via plugins. Tools are also made available through plugins, and are focused on spectroscopy manipulation.
vsfplot is a 2D vector and scalar field plotter. It features Line Integral Convolution (LIC) on data, curvilinear scaled arrows following the flow lines, a mixed mode (scalar field map with overlaid vector field), handling of missing data to not interfere with the flow lines, generation of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files (which are easily editable and convertible while preserving the best quality for inclusion in a PDF scientific article), and a color palette designed so the flows are uniformly readable when printed as greyscale.
Libpointmatcher is a modular "Iterative Closest Point" library, useful for robotics and computer vision. This library is designed with modularity and performance in mind. It provides building blocks to construct various ICP chains often seen in research. These chains can be tuned without any recompilation, and new modules can be added without modifying the core of the library.
HEALPix is a set of scientific tools implementing the Hierarchical Equal Area isoLatitude Pixelation of the sphere. As suggested in the name, this pixelation produces a subdivision of a spherical surface in which every single pixel covers the same surface area. HEALPix provides various programs and libraries in C, C++, Fortran, GDL/IDL, Java, and Python which facilitate discretization, simulation, processing, analysis, and visualization of data on the sphere up to very high resolution. It is the state-of-the-art program used in astronomy and cosmology to deal with massive full-sky data sets.
