Library Resources for Mathematics & Statistics Faculty, Students & Staff

Software for Math & Statistics **including LaTex** are available on public computers with large monitors within Carlson Library and across campus. Many can be downloaded for a discount or for free as part of a University site license.

- IMSL, PV-WavePre-written mathematical and statistical algorithms that can be imbedded into Fortran, C/C++, C# for .NET, and Java applications. (Not free to students?)
- JMPLinks statistics with graphics to interactively explore, understand and visualize data. (Free for students)
- MathematicaMathematica is a software package that is ideal for communicating scientific ideas, whether visualization of a concept in an introductory level course or creating a simulation of a new idea related to research. Mathematica is commonly used in mathematical sciences, physical sciences, business and finance, life sciences, engineering, and computer science. (Free for undergrads, not sure about grads.)
- MATLABMATLAB is an integrated technical computing environment that combines numeric computation, advanced graphics and visualization, and a high-level programming language. MATLAB is used in a variety of application areas including signal and image processing, control system design, finance, engineering, and medical research. (Free for students)
- MATLAB DocumentationSearch for functions and documentation.
- Microsoft OfficeUsers with Office 365 email in select departments can download the latest version of Microsoft Office free of charge as part of the Microsoft Campus Agreement. (Free to students)
- SASIncludes report writing and graphics; statistical and mathematical analysis; statistical quality improvement; computer performance evaluation; applications development and more. (Not free for students)
- SPSS/ AMOSStatistical and data management package for analysts and researchers, providing a broad range of capabilities for the entire analytical process, including powerful Statistics; data access, preparation, and management tools; high-quality tabular and graphical output, and a variety of reporting methods. (Not free for students)
- STATAStatistical package that provides the tools needed for data analysis, data management, and graphics. (Not Free for Students)
