GRIND

GRIND is a powerful and simple system for analyzing systems of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and maps. We use it for phase plane analysis in our courses and for our own research on mathematical models with just a few equations. GRIND allows you to draw trajectories, do time plots, draw nullclines (0-isoclines), compute a Jacobian and its eigenvalues and vectors, and do simple bifurcation analysis. This is all driven by a simple command language. GRIND works on Mac OS, Windows and Unix platforms and creates X11, OpenGL, and PostScript graphical output of publication quality. Look on the Grind webpage for more info.

CASH

CASH is a fast and easy Cellular Automata simulator written and programmable in C. Its main advantage is its speed and its fast and colorful X11 graphics. The CASH library has a large number of routines defining operations over the CA. These are all optimized for parallel and/or vector machines. CASH can be obtained via http download and a PDF version of the manual is online available.

For Redhat linux you also can obtain a binary RPM and build the RPM from the source rpm in the SRPMS directory using the command:
rpm --rebuild PROGRAM.src.rpm
For Ubunto/Debian you can visit the website of Levien van Zon: Ubuntu

Ref2Bib

Ref2bib is a package translating Medline (medlars) or ISI citations into bibtex entries. Ref2Bib can be obtained via http download and a PDF version of the manual is online available. For linux you also can obtain a binary RPM. You can build the RPM for your system from the source rpm in the SRPMS directory using the command:
rpm --rebuild PROGRAM.src.rpm

FUI

FUI is a program for fitting models to data. It was developed in Los Alamos. A version than runs under Linux and Mac OS can be Downloaded.
