Mathematical Modeling

 

Mainstream Tools

Mathcad the easiest to learn and use, with formatting approaching word processor level for report-writing, and much of Maple incorporated.

 

O-Matrix An excellent affordable tool that has an add-on to accept Matlab m-files.

 

Mathematica By Wolfram the premiere high-level analysis and modeling tool.

 

Matlab The oldest and a standard in many facilities, now with Simulink and other tools.

 

Maple The people who brought algebraic manipulation to the mainstream, sill the leaders, in a full-featured modeling and analysis environment.
