IDL, Interactive Data Language, is a well-known application for data analysis, image processing, and matrix manipulation in engineering and scientific research fields. It is used for much the same purposes as the Matlab. IDL's programming language is derived, like Matlab's, from Fortran, and acts basically as a front end to the powerful Lapack linear equation package. Of course, over the years, this interface has been much improved and many more modules added.
JMP is a statistical analysis tool popular in many companies, making many different analysis very simple (including ANOVA, Weibull/Reliability/Survival analysis, Pareto Charts, Variability Charts, Fit Model, etc.).
Minitab Statistical Software gives you the tools you need to analyze your data and make informed decisions about how to improve your business. Its power and ease of use make it the leading package used for quality improvement and statistics education worldwide.
NewPGen tests ranges of numbers to begin the process of searching for large prime numbers. It uses a sieve, like the Sieve of Eratosthenes, but for various special forms of numbers, like Proth numbers.
OpenStat is a free statistical software package written by retired stats professor (Iowa State University) Bill Miller. It can be used to perform a wide range of univariate and multivariate, parametric and non-parametric statistical analyses.
Power Calculator, supports variables, custom functions, standard mathematic functions (like Cos, Sin, Tan), unit conversions. It also draws graphs of custom functions, as long as they have only one variable.
Prime95 is an application to find new Mersenne Primes in a distributed network of nodes. In addition to that it offers so called 'Torture Tests' to test the stability of the RAM and the CPU. These tests are widely used by overclockers.
A powerfull math application. Integration (definite and indefinite), derivation, Differential Equations solver (Laplace, Numeric, Exact), matixes, series, power series, equation solver, inequalities solver, etc.
Scientific statistic tool,statistical, graphical, and analytic data management procedures, but also comprehensive implementations of specialized methods for data analysis (e.g., data mining, business, social sciences, biomedical research, or engineering applications).
In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi and he collaborated with Dr. Y.Kanada at the computer center, the University of Tokyo. This record should be the current world record. ( Details is shown in the windows help. ) This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows 95. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes within 3 days with Pentium 90MHz, 40MB main memory and 340MB available storage.
The TI-Nspire (CAS) Software includes the same utilities and abilities of the next-gen calculator of the same name. It features a dynamic Computer Algebra System which allows one to manipulate symbolic expressions. While weaker than other commercial mathematics packages such as Mathematica or Matlab, it is a great companion to the calculator.
"Unique rule-based analysis and “backsolving” capabilities let you solve for anything, in any direction, dramatically reducing design hours and production costs. Whether your problem involves a single formula or thousands of equations, TK Solver does the job" - description from the UTS web site
