Software

Mathcad
www.mathsoft.com
Mathematical software by MathSoft widely used in physical chemistry and engineering. The full program is available for purchase.

Mathcad Library
www.ptc.com/products/mathcad
A reasonably useful collection of Mathcad files maintained by MathSoft.

Mathematica
www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica
Mathematical software by Wolfram Research. It is widely used by mathematicians and physicists. The full program is available for purchase, but the viewer program, MathReader, may be downloaded at no cost.

ODE Software for Matlab
http://math.rice.edu/~dfield
A free interactive utility that solves ordinary differential equations. Very useful in the study of kinetics and transport, but the on-line documentation is poor.

Symbolic Mathematics Documents for Physical Chemistry
http://www.chemeddl.org/alfresco/service/org/chemeddl/symmath/frameset?guest=true
Links to Symbolic Mathematics files created using Mathcad, Maple, and Mathematica.
