- ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) is a system for generating high-performance mathematical libraries. It generates a library that is specifically tuned to your processor and compiler. ATLAS's purpose is to provide portably optimal linear algebra software. In particular, ATLAS provides ANSI C and Fortran 77 interfaces to the BLAS, and a subset of LAPACK.
- 'Apophenia' is a statistical library for C. It provides functions on the same level as those of the typical stats package (OLS, probit, singular value decomposition, &c.) but doesn't tie the user to an ad hoc language or environment. It uses the GNU Scientific Library for number crunching and SQLite for data management, so the library itself focuses on model estimation and quickly processing data.
- A sequential proof program, designed to assist anyone interested in solving logical proofs. Aris supports both propositional and predicate logic, as well as Boolean algebra and arithmetical logic in the form of abstract sequences. It uses a predefined set of both inference and equivalence rules, however gives the user options to use older proofs as lemmas, including Isabelle's Isar proofs.
- 'Asymptote' is a script-based vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. It provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. It is a programming language, not just a graphics program, so it can use the best features of both scripts and GUIs. High-level graphics commands are implemented in the language itself, so they can be tailored to specific applications. Labels and equations are typeset with LaTeX for high-quality PostScript output.
- AutoClass solves the problem of automatic discovery of classes in data (sometimes called clustering or unsupervised learning), as distinct from the generation of class descriptions from labeled examples (called supervised learning). It aims to discover the 'natural' classes in the data. AutoClass is applicable to observations of things that can be described by a set of attributes, without referring to other things. The data values corresponding to each attribute are limited to be either numbers or the elements of a fixed set of symbols. With numeric data, a measurement error must be provided.
- Axiom is a general purpose Computer Algebra system. It was originally created under the name Scratchpad and has seen development at companies such as IBM and NAG. Axiom provides a mature, powerful, strongly typed environment designed to enable research into mathematical algorithms and theory. It is also useful for engineering or scientific purposes.
- The BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) are routines that provide standard building blocks for performing basic vector and matrix operations. The Level 1 BLAS perform scalar, vector and vector-vector operations, the Level 2 BLAS perform matrix-vector operations, and the Level 3 BLAS perform matrix-matrix operations. Because the BLAS are efficient, portable, and widely available, they are commonly used in the development of high quality linear algebra software, LAPACK for example.
- bas55 is an editor, byte code compiler and interpreter for the Minimal BASIC programming language, as defined by the ECMA-55 standard.
- 'Bc' is an arbitrary precision numeric processing language. Its syntax is similar to C, but differs in many substantial areas. It supports interactive execution of statements. 'Bc' is a utility included in the POSIX P1003.2/D11 draft standard. This version does not use the historical method of having bc be a compiler for the dc calculator (the POSIX document doesn't specify how bc must be implemented). This version has a single executable that both compiles the language and runs the resulting 'byte code.' The byte code is not the dc language.
- besssugo is a free computational tool specifically designed to aid a cognizant expert—i.e. you, whether an engineer, scientist, technician, geek, etc—to build videos showing the result of a certain scientific calculation or whatever data can be computed or storied in a digital computer. Technically speaking, it is a plugin for the computational tool wasora, which provides means to parse and understand a high-level plain-text input file containing algebraic expressions, data for function interpolation, differential equations and output instructions amongst other facilities. Therefore, any mathematical computation which can be done by wasora—i.e. solving systems of differential-algebraic equations, multidimensional interpolation of scattered data, numerical integration and differentiation, etc.—can be combined with the facilities that besssugo provides to create visual representations in the form of animations.
