The Kent Retargettable Occam Compiler is a multi-platform Occam 2.1 compiler that is designed to allow the Occam programming language to be used on non-Transputer platforms. Extensions from a subset of the Occam 3 specification and from pi calculus have been added over time. As a result, the version of the language supported by the compiler is also sometimes referred to as Occam 2.5 or Occam-pi.
SOFEA is a Matlab object-oriented Finite Element toolkit. It includes the book, A Pragmatic Introduction to Finite Element Analysis for Structural Engineers. The toolkit provides linear transient thermal analysis capabilities, with stress analysis and coupled multi-physics coming shortly.
INDI is an instrument-neutral distributed interface control protocol that aims to provide backend driver support and automation for a wide range of astronomical devices (telescopes, focusers, CCDs, etc.). Current supported devices include many telescopes, CCDs, filter wheels, focusers, and video cams. INDI is used in popular astronomy suites like Xephem, KStars, DCD, and Cartes Du Ciel.
gfit analyzes data using models. gfit lets the user create a model for virtually any type of system using a minimal amount of computer code. It is particularly useful for studying various systems in biophysics, biochemistry, and cell biology. The interface for gfit models specifies relationships between input and output variables in a rule-based fashion. It provides flexibility and allows the user to reuse same models for many related problems.
Genius is an arbitrary precision integer and multiple precision floating point calculator. It includes its own programming language similar in some aspects to C, bc, or Pascal. It can deal with rational numbers and complex numbers. It has matrix support as well. It uses the gmp library so it is very fast for calculations of large numbers. It has a command line and a GNOME interface. The GNOME interface supports plotting functions and 3D surfaces.
VisIt is an interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for viewing scientific data. Users can quickly generate visualizations from their data, animate them through time, manipulate them, and save the resulting images for presentations. VisIt contains a rich set of visualization features so that you can view your data in a variety of ways. It can be used to visualize scalar and vector fields defined on two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) structured and unstructured meshes. It was designed to interactively handle very large data set sizes in the terascale range, and works well down to small data sets in the kilobyte range.
