Multi-Platform Software Collection
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 - Groups, Algorithms and Programming

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


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.

KASH - the KAnt SHell

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

METRIC - Mathematics Education Technology Research at Imperial College (formerly known as the Transitional Mathematics Project)

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


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


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
