# Math software

## LAPACK and BLAS

- The LAPACK
linear algebra library. The reference BLAS is available from this
site.
- The ATLAS
implementation of BLAS
- The GOTO
implementation of BLAS

## Data and Visualization

- Paraview for visualization
of 2D and 3D data sets. Supports many data formats, including
Exodus and unstructured VTK. As the name suggests, Paraview does
parallel viz and serial viz of parallel data sets.
- GNU Octave
does 2D plots (of 1D data) with a syntax similar to Matlab's plotting
functions. It also does surface plots of 2D data, but with
finite element
simulations on unstructured meshes you'll more often use
Paraview for plotting 2D data.
- The NetCDF
library and utilities for storing large data sets. Sandia's
Exodus library is built on top of NetCDF.

## LaTeX stuff

- LyX is an almost-WYSIWYG editor
for LaTex.
