This page contains links for software packages that run on a variety of different
platforms. In particular, there are links to sites which are mirrored on the Math
Archives.
GAP is a system for computational discrete algebra with particular emphasis
on, but not restricted to computational group theory. Available for Windows,
Macintosh and Unix. The Math Archives is a mirror of the main GAP Web site
found at http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/gap.
Gnuplot is a command-line driven interactive function plotting utility for
UNIX, MSDOS, and VMS platforms. The software is copyrighted but freely distributed
(i.e., you don't have to pay for it). It was originally intended as graphical
program which would allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical
functions and data.
KANT V4 is developed by a research group at the Technische Universit"at
Berlin under the project leadership of Prof. Dr. M. E. Pohst. Its name is
the abbreviation of Computational Algebraic Number Theory with a slight hint
of its German origin. As the name indicates, KANT is a software package for
mathematicians interested in algebraic number theory. For those KANT is a
tool for sophisticated computations in number fields. Available for Windows
and Unix. The Math Archives is a mirror of the KASH site at http://www.math.TU-Berlin.DE/~kant/kash.html
As described in the original funding proposal, the project was established
to respond to the problems experienced by new undergraduates in Science and
Engineering courses who lacked the mathematical knowledge, skills and confidence
they needed to tackle the first-year courses at Imperial College. The materials
consist of a series of Mathematica modules which are used in the book, Experiments
in Undergraduate Mathematics: A Mathematica-Based Approach. The Math
Archives is a mirror of the METRIC site at http://metric.ma.ic.ac.uk/.
MuPAD is a computer algebra system developed by the MuPAD Research Group
under direction of Prof. B. Fuchssteiner at the University of Paderborn (Germany).
MuPAD is a general purpose computer algebra system for symbolic and numerical
computations. Users can view the library code, implement their own routines
and data types easily and can also dynamically link C/C++ compiled modules
for raw speed and flexibility. Available for Windows, Macintosh, OS2 and Unix.
The Math Archives is a mirror of the MuPAD site at http://www.mupad.de..
TRANSMATH is a Self-paced Computer-based learning system designed to bridge
the transition from A level (or equivalent) mathematics to 1st year undergraduate
level mathematics. Available for Windows. The Math Archives is a mirror of
the Transmath site at http://caliban.leeds.ac.uk.
