             High Quality Free Scientific Software
                           Part 1/3

The  LinUX-X-Windows  (a  free  32  bit operative system for PCs)
environment has evolved quite fast and is no longer exclusive for
the programmming oriented scientists.   Those  of you with either
tight budgets or who think the cost-effectiveness and or  quality
of  commercial software is bad should, definitely, have a look on
this     Scientific      Software      List      [Compiled     by
[log in to unmask] from the source  "The  LinUX
Machine"].

The  present  list  intends to make aware both juniors scientists
and the scientific community as a whole aware on the availability
of *high quality*  scientific  software,  copyrighted but free of
any license fees whatsoever for non-commercial purposes.

LinUX, the operating system, may be freely retrieved from several
mirror  sites  around  the  world  and  will  run  on  IBM-PC  or
compatibles with a 386 CPU or higher and a minimum  of  4  Mb  of
RAM.  Further, it seems the flagships running under LinUX are the
GIS applications.

MP.  The Multi  Project  is  an  ongoing  research effort at Kent
State University aimed at providing a framework  for  distributed
scientific  computing.  An integral part of this framework is the
Multi  Protocol  (MP)  which  is  designed  to  support efficient
communication      of       mathematical       data       between
scientifically-oriented  software packages.  MP exchanges data in
the form  of  linearized  annotated  syntax  trees.  Syntax trees
provide a simple, flexible  and  application-independent  way  to
represent  and  exchange data, and annotations provide a powerful
and  generic  expressive  facility  for  transmitting  additional
information.                                                  WWW

objects,   reference   attributes,   general   block   structure,
coroutines  and  concurrency.  The BETA implementation has native
code  generation,   garbage   collection,  separate  compilation,
configuration control, interface to C and assembly,  source-level
debugger,  and  persistent  objects.  There is a large library of
class    patterns     and     application     frameworks.     WWW

VCG  TOOL.   The  VCG  tool  reads   a   textual   and   readable
specification  of  a  graph and visualizes the graph.  If not all
positions of nodes are  fixed,  the  tool layouts the graph using
several  heuristics  as  reducing  the   number   of   crossings,
minimizing   the   size   of  edges,  centering  of  nodes.   The
specification language of the  VCG  tool  is nearly compatible to
GRL, the language of the edge tool, but contains many extensions.
The VCG tool is not a graph editor.  It is intended to  visualize
large  graphs  that are automatically generated by programs, e.g.
debuggers         of         data         structures.         WWW

thus making programming  using  them  significantly  easier  than
otherwise * make good use of C++ facilities (operator overloading
and  templates  in  particular)  to minimize the amount of code a
programmer  must  write  *   provide   adequate  hooks  for  easy

FORM  --  1.1  --   26/May/94   (Version  2  is  commercial,  ask
[log in to unmask]).  FORM is a symbolic manipulation  program  that  is
eminently  suited  for large problems in mathematics, physics and
engeneering.  The size of the  formulae that it can manipulate is
virtually unlimited: the major limitation is usually the size  of
the available disk space.  It has been designed for speed so that
large  expressions  may be dealt with in a finite amount of time.
Overflowing the available amounts  of  physical memory results in
only a minor slow down as the disk  memory  is  managed  by  FORM
itself  rather than by the virtual memory manager of the computer
(the memory management can  slow  down  a computer algebra system
enormously when expressions  become  large).   ftp  ftp.nikhef.nl

LASSPTools -- 19/Nov/94.  Graphical and Numerical Enhancements to
Unix.  LASSPTools is a collection of Unix utilities for numerical
analysis and graphics.  The operating system of most computers is
designed  around  their  primary  use:  text  processing.  We are
attempting  to  provide  the  same  system  utilities  for number
crunching and dynamical displays of results  that  are  available
for   sorting,  searching,  and  manipulating  text  files.   ftp

XPP-Aut (X-Windows Phase Plane plus  Auto)  is a tool for solving
differential equations, difference  equations,  delay  equations,
functional  equations,  boundary  value  problems, and stochastic
equations  that  usually   arised   in  dynamical  systems.   ftp

GELDA (A GEneral Linear Differential Algebraic  equation  solver)
is  a  Fortran77  sofware  package  for the numerical solution of
linear  differential-algebraic  equations  (DAE's)  with variable
coefficients  of  arbitrary  index  together  with   an   initial
condition.  WWW http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/~rath/gelda.html

NCAR's  Mathematical  and  Statistical Libraries.  NCAR (National
Center for Atomopheric  Research)  has  a collection of numerical
codes, some  of  them  are  available  in  NetLib  and  some  are
commercial.        ftp      ftp.ucar.edu      /dsl/lib/,      WWW
