Cactus is a general, modular, parallel environment for solving systems of partial differential equations. The code has been developed over many years by a large international collaboration of numerical relativity and computational science research groups and can be used to provide a portable platform for solving any system of partial differential equations.

distributed.net is a loosely knit group of computer users from all of the world that is taking up challenges requiring lots of computing power (most notably the RC5, DES, and OGR cracking contests). It is simple to participate in the challenges by downloading and running their client software (which uses idle CPU time to complete its tasks).

GLE (Graphics Layout Engine) is a graphics scripting language designed for creating publication quality figures (e.g., a chart, plot, graph, or diagram). GLE supports various chart types (including function plot, histogram, bar chart, scatter plot, contour plot, color map, and surface plot) through a simple but flexible set of graphing commands. More complex output can be created by relying on GLE's scripting language, which is full featured with subroutines, variables, and logic control. GLE relies on LaTeX for text output and supports mathematical formulae in graphs and figures.

GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing platform with special features for scientists. The software aims to provide a unified and user friendly framework for editing structured documents with different types of content: text, mathematics, graphics, interactive content. TeXmacs can also be used as an interface to many external systems for computer algebra, numerical analysis, and statistics. New presentation styles can be written by the user and new features can be added to the editor using Scheme.

Groups, Algorithms, and Programming (GAP) is a system for computational discrete algebra with particular emphasis on computational group theory and related areas. It provides a Pascal-like interpreted language, data types for many algebraic objects, a function library, and large libraries of data.

ixlib is a C++ tools library based upon the STL. It provides garbage collection, a small well-integratable JavaScript interpreter, linear algebra components (e.g., linear solver, LU decomposition), planar geometry, polygons, automatic arrays, rasterization for geometric primitives and polygons, regular expressions and XML parsing (non-DTD). Its main design goals were simplicity and small size.

KSEG is a program for exploring Euclidean geometry, similar to Geometer's Sketchpad. It features points, lines, transformations, measurements, calculations, simple editable recursive Constructions (similar to macros), adaptively sampled loci, and selection groups. Several languages are supported. KSEG is very fast, stable, and has an efficient and consistent UI. It uses Qt and does not require KDE.
