Scientific linux

A quick list of software you will need if you want your linux scientific. Only open projects, many mainstream software (maple, matlab…) also have commercial linux versions.

Graphs

Math, numerics

Math,symbolic

CFD

Libraries

Programming

Publishing

  • LaTeX
  • emacs (don’t forget the AucTeX extension for LaTeX)

Statistics

Everything

Of course, there is scientific linux, a whole linux distro that is oriented to science. Also, poseidon linux (oceanography), bio linux (biology), and CAElinux (mechanical engineering).

  1. It’s a great list,

    But I think that you forgot the most important articles writer for scientifics.
    If you finish you multipyisic simulation using OpenFOAM + ParaView + CGAL you maybe want to write an article about it.

    You have to use LaTeX😀

    PD: Scientific Linux it’s based on Arch Linux, that sound good…

    • That’s correct, I forgot LaTeX. I forgot other things I use so much I take for granted: CGAL, gnumeric libs… I’ll add them in a revised entry. Thanks!

  2. Hola, Daniel. Ha sido muy curioso caer en tu blog buscando información sobre la thermomix. Aparte de saludarte y agradecerte la idea de comprar una TM21, quería comentarte que Sage no creo que esté muy bien clasificado dentro del software de computación simbólica. Sage pretende substituir simultáneamente a Maple y Mathematica, pero también a Matlab. De hecho, con Sage se pueden hacer cálculos usando numpy u octave.

    Por cierto, que en la lista a lo mejor querrías añadir numpy, si te parece bien.
    Saludos!
