This page contains information about downloading, installing, and running some open-source software that we consider useful for maths students. At present much of the information is windows-specific.

Here you'll find information about:

  • LaTeX the de facto industry standard for mathematical typesetting
  • Octave a Matlab-like programming environment
  • PARI/GP a computer algebra system designed for fast computations in number theory but is also very adept at working with power series, matrices, polynomials, etc.
