# Review:Degree Calculator-REV-ID-1

## Thank you for helping to improve the Free Software Directory!

This submission will now wait until an administrator reviews it and chooses whether to add it to the directory. If you would like to become an admin, then visit the directory mailing list and introduce yourself.

Admins, this may be a request for a new entry. First run some searches for the page. Admins may create the page after making sure that it doesn't already exist under a similar name. (You may also want to edit the part of the URL after "/Entry/", then load that address, to make sure it is concise and doesn't contain strange characters or unwanted spaces.)

Admins, when you are done incorporating any needed changes from this page into a main entry, please edit this page and change the following text from: `|Finished review=No` to: `|Finished review=yes`. This helps keep submissions organized. (Note that doing this isn't what adds the entry to the directory.)

Name Degree Calculator Interactive program that numerically computes the topological degree of a map from a box in Rn to Rn. The program attempts the computation of the topological degree of the self-map, in the n-dimensional Euclidean space, f=(f[0];...;f[n-1]), with respecto to the point Q=(Q[0];...;Q[n-1]), relatively to an n-dimensional box P whose faces are parallel to the hyper-planes x[0]=0,...,x[n-1]=0 and id defined by two apposite corners A=(A[0];...;A[n-1]) and B=(B[0];...;B[n-1]). Namely, P = {(x[0];...;x[n-1]): A[i] < x[i] < B[i], i=0,...,n}. The program works by attempting the computation, via the Montecarlo method, of a certain integral on the preimage of a given (hyper-)cube centered at Q. The choice of the integration method has been determined by simplicity and robustness considerations. Unfortunately this choice is not well-suited for problems in many dimensions where the necessary number of trial points becomes quickly prohibitively high. At the end of each computation, before returning control to user interface, a batch of checks is run on approximation parameters and warnings are raised in suspicious cases. However the user is well-advised not to rely too heavily on these tests. http://www.dma.unifi.it/~spadini/Software/degree_calculator-1.5.01/ No Python topological degree 1.5.01 stable No
