This document lists the science and math packages and tools are available from the ACCC at UIC. Don't see what you want on the platform or machine that you want to use it on? Check out the Netlib and GAMS; chances are you'll find it there. Or do a WWW search (Lycos and Google are pretty good for science and math. If you find something you think would be of somewhat general interest, let us know and we'll see about installing it for public use. (Send email to suggest@uic.edu.) For links to info on everything science and math (and programming languages) from the people who brought you MATLAB, see MathWorks' http://www.mathtools.net. 

About this Document  
This document lists the science and math packages and tools are available at UIC:
Also included are links to various FAQs and other resources. 

ANSYS  
ANSYS is a generalpurpose. finiteelement modeling package for numerically solving a mechanical problems, including: static and dynamic, linear and nonlinear structural analysis, and heat transfer, fluid, acoustic, and electromagnetic problems.


Gaussian 03  
Gaussian 03 is the latest in the Gaussian series of electronic structure programs.
It is designed to model a broad range of molecular systems under a variety of
conditions, performing its computations starting from the basic laws of quantum
mechanics. Gaussian is only available on argo.


Gnu plotting package  
GNU's interactive plotting package for Unix.


IMSL Math and Statistics Subroutine Library  
The IMSL FORTRAN 90 Numerical Libraries is a comprehensive resource of more than 900 FORTRAN 90 subroutines for applications in general applied mathematics and for analyzing and presenting statistical data in scientific and business applications. It is available on both icarus and argo.


Maple symbolic math  
Maple is a symbolic math package, including calculus, graphics, infinite precision math, and graphics. Maple has many builtin special functions, including outputting expressions in FORTRAN or TeX and the numerical evaluation of expressions to arbitrary precision.


MATLAB math and matrix package  
MATLAB is an interactive system for manipulating arrays (which don't have to be of a specified dimension), allowing you to solve matrix and vector computing problems without having to write a program in a language such as C or Fortran.


Speakeasy interactive matrix and statistics  
Speakeasy is useful for the interactive manipulation of arrays and matrices, eigenanalyses, and statistics, and for many other mathematical calculations. Interactive users receive the answers instantaneously, giving Speakeasy the attributes of a powerful calculator. For a list of Speakesy reference manuals, enter: help publications while using Speakeasy.


Note on Scientific Computing Packages on argo  
There are a number of additional commercial science and math computing packages on argo. For an uptodate list, see Commercial Software Packages on Argo. For more information on argo, see the Argo Home Page.
