REDUCE is a system for doing algebra by computer that also supports numerical approximation and interfaces to gnuplot to provide graphics. It has a long and distinguished place in the history of computer algebra systems. For comparison, other systems that address some of the same issues but sometimes with rather different emphases are Axiom, Derive, Macsyma (Maxima), Maple, Mathematica, and MuPAD.
Resistors is a program to calculate the most suitable E-series resistors for voltage dividers or for generating other values by putting two resistors in parallel. It is especially useful for selecting resistor values for the voltage dividers used in variable voltage regulators. In effect, the voltage in the middle of the divider is known, and you want to achieve a regulated voltage (the top value).
Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. The API is deliberately similar to Matlab's. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS numerics libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.
The DataFinder is a lightweight application software for managing technical and scientific data. It was developed to manage large amounts of data, and allows data to be stored using a number of different storage interfaces (e.g. WebDAV, FTP, GridFTP, SRB, OpenAFS, or TSM). The structure of the data and descriptive metadata are stored in XML format on the central server and can be edited using the standardized WebDAV protocol.
libCVD is a very portable and high performance C++ library for computer vision, image, and video processing. The emphasis is on providing simple and efficient image and video handling and high quality implementations of common low-level image processing function. The library is designed in a loosely-coupled manner, so that parts can be used easily in isolation if the whole library is not required. The video grabbing module provides a simple, uniform interface for videos from a variety of sources (live and recorded) and allows easy access to the raw pixel data. Likewise, the image loading/saving module provides simple, uniform interfaces for loading and saving images from bitmaps to 64 bit per channel RGBA images. The image processing routines can be applied easily to images and video, and accelerated versions exist for platforms supporting SSE.
JAME is an application for creating fractals and other graphics artifacts. It is written in the Java language, with some native code to accelerate encoding of videos and images. It has a real-time, multi-threaded graphics engine with layers, filters, effects, a lot of formulas, and parameters. JAME supports operations such as continuous zoom of Mandelbrot and Julia sets, rotation, and color shifting. JAME has also advanced features such as networked computation and scripting. You can take photos of your fractals or record movies from your exploration paths. Photos and movies are stored in a database to be rendered in high resolution and exported to a file. JAME can be extended by plug-ins which provide fractals, formulas, filters, effects, and more.
