Mathematical software

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mathematical software is software used to model, analyze or calculate numeric, symbolic or geometric data.[1]

Computer algebra systems[edit]

Many mathematical suites are computer algebra systems that use symbolic mathematics. They are designed to solve classical algebra equations and problems in human readable notation.


Many tools are available for statistical analysis of data. See also Comparison of statistical packages.

Optimization software[edit]


Numerical analysis[edit]

TK Solver is a mathematical modeling and problem solving software system based on a declarative, rule-based language, commercialized by Universal Technical Systems, Inc..

The Netlib repository contains various collections of software routines for numerical problems, mostly in Fortran and C. Commercial products implementing many different numerical algorithms include the IMSL, NMath and NAG libraries; a free alternative is the GNU Scientific Library. A different approach is taken by the Numerical Recipes library, where emphasis is placed on clear understanding of algorithms.

Many computer algebra systems (listed above) can also be used for numerical computations.

Music mathematics software[edit]

Music mathematics software utilizes mathematics to analyze or synthesize musical symbols and patterns.


Growing number of mathematical software is available in the web browser, without the need to download or install any code.[3][4]

Programming libraries[edit]

Low-level mathematical libraries intended for use within other programming languages:
