A Portable General-Purpose Computer Algebra System
REDUCE is an interactive system for general algebraic computations of interest to mathematicians, scientists and engineers. It can be used interactively for simple calculations but also provides a flexible and expressive user programming language. The development of the REDUCE computer algebra system was started in the 1960s by Anthony C. Hearn. Since then, many scientists from all over the world have contributed to its development. REDUCE has a long and distinguished place in the history of computer algebra systems. Other systems that address some of the same issues but sometimes with rather different emphasis are Axiom, Derive, Macsyma (Maxima), Maple, Mathematica and MuPAD. REDUCE primarily runs on either Portable Standard Lisp (PSL) or Codemist Standard Lisp (CSL), both of which are included in the SourceForge distribution. By modern standards, REDUCE is a surprisingly small and compact application, which runs well on all major operating systems.

GridLAB-D is a new power system simulation tool that provides valuable information to users who design and operate electric power transmission and distribution systems, and to utilities that wish to take advantage of the latest smart grid technology. It incorporates advanced modeling techniques with high-performance algorithms to deliver the latest in end-use load modeling technology integrated with three-phase unbalanced power flow, and retail market systems. Historically, the inability to effectively model and evaluate smart grid technologies has been a barrier to adoption; GridLAB-D is designed to address this problem.

An open source flight dynamics & control software library in C++
JSBSim is an object-oriented (C++), multi-platform, non linear 6 DoF, Flight Dynamics Model (FDM). The FDM is essentially the physics & math model that defines the movement of an aircraft, rocket, etc., under the forces and moments applied to it using the various control mechanisms and from the forces of nature. JSBSim can be run as a standalone, batch-mode flight simulator (no graphical displays), or integrated with FlightGear or other flight simulator. The aircraft models included in this project and distribution do not include any proprietary, sensitive, or classified data. This should be rather obvious. All data is derived from textbooks, freely available technical reports, or other public data. Likewise, no proprietary code is included. All code included within JSBSim has been developed on a volunteer basis using publicly available information, and is often directly linked to a particular textbook, for educational reference.
