GiNaC is an acronym for GiNaC Is Not A CAS, where CAS stands for Computer Algebra System. It lets the user create integrated systems that embed symbolic manipulations together with more established areas of computers sciences under one roof. It has been specifically developed to become a replacement engine for xloops. However, it is not restricted to high energy physics applications. Its design is revolutionary in that contrary to other CAS it does not try to provide extensive algebraic capabilities and a simple programming language but instead accepts a given language (C++) and extends it by a set of algebraic capabilities.

Giac/Xcas is a free computer algebra system. It has a compatibility mode for maple, mupad and the TI89. It is available as a standalone program (graphic or text interfaces) or as a C++ library.

JACAL is an interactive symbolic math program that can manipulate and simplify equations, scalars, vectors, and matrices of single and multiple valued algebraic expressions containing numbers, variables, radicals, and algebraic differential, and holonomic functions.

This is a text editor for writing math lessons and providing tools for doing all the exercises from elementary school to junior high. The software is especially designed to fulfil the needs of disabled pupils, and pupils suffering from dyspraxia in particular. The program manages the child's documents like a notebook, organized with chapters, and separating lessons, exercises and evaluations, making it very easy to navigate through the documents.

'MathStudio' is a project intended to make typing and resolution of mathematical expressions easier and more comfortable. Many other programs like this force the user to write input data using one row only (everything is typed at the same level, exponents and bases are on the same row) and use a lot of brackets to make the operation order explicit. Since this is very different from the math you do manually, the aim of this project is to reduce this gap providing both cross-platform libraries which can be embedded in other programs and a program, MathStudio, which demonstrates their usage.

'Mathomatic' is a small, portable, general purpose symbolic math program that can solve, simplify, combine, differentiate, and compare algebraic equations. It can do standard, complex number, and polynomial arithmetic, and is designed to be as general as possible, with few options.

Maxima is a fairly complete computer algebra system written in lisp with an emphasis on symbolic computation. It is the Common Lisp implementation of MIT's Macsyma system for computer based algebra.
