Free (and open source) alternatives:
Octave – mostly compatible with MatLab, allowing to combine with C++ code, works with Visual Studio (
Sage – developed at the University of Washington (
SciLab can be used for signal processing, statistical analysis, image enhancement, fluid dynamics simulations, numerical optimization, and a lot of other things. It has also a symbolic manipulations toolbox. MATLAB code, which is similar in syntax, can be converted to Scilab.
There are a bunch of others but these are more universal, popular and handy. They are featured in Wikipedia (look up “GNU_Octave”, “Sage_(mathematics_software)”, “Scilab”). They are not only totally free (GNU standard) but cross-platform (UNIX, Mac, Windows) and can be combined with popular commercial programming/development/math systems.

LyX is a freeware document processing application for Windows. Unlike the Notepad, one of the simplest applications ever conceived, LyX tries to make writing accessible to the masses, and, also, to those who need more than just writing words. LyX comes with several layouts inbuilt. Those layouts allow you to tackle all sorts of creative-writing works by providing you with the necessary tools for you to do it. For example, if you need to write a movie script, there is a layout for you, which has all the standard markers already added, so you don't have to add them yourself, and lose time on it. LyX is also great for mathematical expressions and general papers and studies. Adding mathematical characters is terribly easy. You just can't do that on the Notepad. I would be amazed if you didn't waste a minute doing a simple calculation on there. Also, LyX allows you to open and save documents in a variety of formats. This tool is an open source project, so it is free of charge for non-commercial use. If you are a heavy-duty writer, there's no harm in checking this out. The latest version of LyX is However, this review deals with version 1.6. Review licensed from Publisher description LyX's interface appears to be similar to the one of many WYSIWYG word processors out there, but on a closer look you will observe that you don't have font style and size selection boxes, nor text format or alignment buttons. That fits in with the Lyx editing philosophy that "what you see is what you mean." When you say that you want to add a title to your document, you don't mean "a text that is centered and has a larger font size," you mean just that – a title – and all you have to do is pick the "Title" style from the box and start writing. The same goes for paragraphs, sections, lists and just about any other text element that you can think of.

= MathProf is a powerful and advanced mathematics training software tool. It includes nearly 180 Math functions categorized into several areas, such as Analysis, Geometry, Algebra, and Stochastics. With those functions you can solve equations, draw graphs and shapes in 2D and 3D, solve matrices, and more. The program has a modern and attractive user interface. It offers a main menu at the top, with all the math areas it covers; inside each area, you will find the functions related to it, and many of those functions even include sub-options that you can also use. For example, in the Geometry area you can select the Triangle function, and then you can choose from a right-angled triangle, a general triangle, or drawing your own triangle using the mouse. Every function or sub-option you choose opens a new window, where you can input parameters, rates, variables, etc., depending on the nature of the function picked. One of the most powerful features of the program is its capability to generate graphs. You can graph equations, geometric shapes, functions and more, in 2 or 3 dimensions. For instance, you can draw a three-dimensional parallelepiped, or up to eight algebraic functions in different colors within a single Cartesian plane. In addition, you can rotate your graph by any angle, which is especially useful for three-dimensional graphics. Finally, I must mention that the program includes many extras and related tools. Among them you have a text editor, a math terms translator between English and German, a calendar, and even some mind-training games. In short, MathProf is a versatile tool for any high school and its advanced-level students. Review licensed from Publisher description MathProf is an easy to use mathematics program. Through the use of two and three dimensional graphics, MathProf can display mathematical correlations in a very clear and simple way. The program covers the following areas in approximately 180 subroutines: - Analysis - Geometry - Algebra - 3D Mathematics - Stochastics - Vector algebra - Linear algebra MathProf helps Junior High School students with problems in Geometry and Algebra. High School and College students, seeking to expand their knowledge into further reaching mathematical concepts find this program very useful as well. This program is also a tool for users of various ages and professions to create simple two dimensional drawings or to clarify and visualize geometrical correlations. Because MathProf is so easy to handle it also helps to intensify the understanding of familiar subjects. It is requiered though, that the mathematical theme has already been taught and the basic correlations are known. Every mathematical subject is enriched with examples, helping the user to easily get an overview of a selected theme.
