In this post I’ll go through some of the most prominent math programs available with source code.
This is by no means “original” work, I just collected the headlines and links to various mathematical software projects out there. This started with an offer of my University (Mathematica for 13 Euro), but I don’t want to invest time in a tool I won’t have (free, or almost free) access to for the rest of my life.

Here a few tips which might help you to read and hopefully understand scientific papers.
