Software – Free alternatives
software is specialized code used to analyze, model, or compute
symbolic, or geometric information. Many numerical suites are computer
systems that use symbolic algebra. They are designed to solve classical
equations and tasks in close-to-common notation. This is a short list

Octave is a high-level interpreted language, intended for numerical
computations. It provides capabilities for the numerical solution of
nonlinear problems, and for performing other numerical experiments. It
provides graphics capabilities for data visualization and

including differentiation, integration, Laplace transforms,
equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials, lists, vectors,

fractions, arbitrary precision integers, and variable precision
numbers. It can plot functions and data in 2D and 3D. Maxima is a

Euler Mathematical Toolbox is a powerful, mature software for numerical
symbolic computations. Euler is similar to Matlab, but has an own
style, and a
slightly different syntax. Symbolic mathematics is supported in Euler
