Science essentials

Graphing software, calculators, engineering tools, chemistry fun and more

Stefan Wuerthner yesterday unveiled his extensive software library that features tools and utilities for those interested in the subjects of astronomy, chemistry, electronics, mathematics, neural networks and more besides. Having checked over the site, the software library consists of software collected by Stefan, rather than software authored by him. Drobe is always wary of online software catalogues such as this, as newer versions of software aren't automatically mirrored on lists such as Stefan's.

Having said that, the list has been laid out in a very clear and logical manner and is quite useful for finding previously 'lost' or obscure freeware software. Software authors who have written scientific or related tools are welcome to submit them to Stefan for inclusion in the catalogue.

This is a really good idea. It would just be nice if there was a lot more science-based software available for the platform. Graphing is excellent, though.

yep and Stephan has my (well chris edwards as well) only app on there. !imageproc for measuring perameter images of cells. This could also be used for any perimeter ands axis measurement. plaese all download it and modify it. (especialla WIMP fromt end) then contact me. r.hartley@bio.gla.ac.uk cheers bob; unfortunately not using the platform these days. :-(

A good idea in principle but missing some important applications which exist on RISCOS ...
