# Math tools

Project Euler - just cause.

## Math Packages

Octave
Madagascar - package for multidimensional data analysis and reproducible computational experiments.
ASCEND - ASCEND can solve systems of non-linear equations, linear and nonlinear optimisation problems, and dynamic systems expressed in the form of differential/algebraic equations.

## Visualization

Lately I've been trying to communicate complicated geometric problems with co-workers who are remote workers. If we worked together in a normal office enviroment, we would simply use a white board...
GeoGebra - an open source
CABRI3D - Cabri 3D is a 3-dimensional commercial interactive geometry software
Dynamic Geometry - Home - Silverlight 2 and C# 3.0 computer model of plane geometry that allows you to create interactive ruler and compass constructions and experiment with them.

Hilbert II - a program suite that enables a mathematician to put theorems and proofs into that knowledge base.
Tac - A generic and adaptable interactive theorem prover

Sage: Open Source Mathematics Software
graph.tk - graph.tk/about, which aantthony/graph.tk apparently is being superseded by aantthony/javascript-cas.

mathematical typesetting
you might have noticed, I'm a MathJax fan, since it is randomly displayed on my site. here is some info on MathJax, and some example usage...
1 . $a^2 + b^2 = c^2$ 2 . $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ 3 . $x = \dfrac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac}}{2a}$ 4 . $m = \dfrac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1} = \dfrac{\Delta y}{\Delta x}$ 5 . $f'(x) = \lim\limits_{\Delta x \to 0} \dfrac{f(x+\Delta x)-f(x)}{\Delta x}$ 6 . $\dfrac{d}{dx} \left [[x^n \right ] = nx^{n - 1}$ 7 . $\int_a^b f(x)~dx = \left [[F(x) \right ]_a^b = F(b) - F(a)$ 8 . $\int_a^b f(x)~dx = f(c)(b - a)$ 9 . $\text{average value} = \dfrac{1}{(b-a)} \int_a^b f(x)~dx$ 10 . $\dfrac{d}{dx} \left [[\int_a^x f(t)~dt \right ] = f(x)$
MathJax - MathJax is an open source JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all browsers.
Wiki MathJax Syntax - the above samples come from this page, you'll want to note the use of ?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML on the MathJax.js request. this loads TeX/AMSmath.js defining /dfrac, resolving your "undefined control sequence \dfrac" error. It also brings in AMSsymbols.js and some other javascript relating to error handling.

kmcallister/propane · GitHub - Propane is a system for functional synthesis of images and animations. (Haskell) In spirit of Pan, Propane uses the Repa array library. This means that Propane automatically uses multiple CPU cores for rendering, provided the program is compiled and run with threads enabled. That said, the implementation has not yet been optimized for speed.
