Dynamics of quantum systems, controlled by external fields
WavePacket is a program package for numerical simulation of quantum-mechanical wavepacket dynamics for distinguishable particles. It can be used to solve one or more (i.e. coupled channels) time-independent or time-dependent (linear) Schrödinger and Liouville-von Neumann-equations. Optionally accounting for the interaction with external electric fields within the semiclassical dipole approximation, WavePacket can simulate modern experiments using ultrashort light pulses in photo-induced physics or chemistry, including quantum optimal control. The graphical capabilities allow visualization 'on the fly', including Wigner transforms to phase space. For more detailed description see also our articles in Computer Physics Communications at https://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cpc.2016.12.007 and https://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cpc.2018.02.022. First established in 2004, the present Matlab version is in a stable, mature state. Further development mainly by Burkhard Schmidt at Free University Berlin

Uses a new algorithm for glound clutter attenuation prediction, based on a ray model. Terrain type data is taken from Corine CLC2006 shapefiles, which gives great accuracy for all of Europe, or from any other land cover data such as VMAP0 shapefiles. Has an internal APRS client which can be used to display stations as a landmark. Can use antenna radiation patterns generated by 4NEC2 or other NEC2 compatible antenna modelling programs. QRadioPredict can operate as a traditional standalone program or can be connected to Flightgear for real-time radio analysis.

COmputational fluid dyNamics STRUctured grid CreaTor for 2D airfoils
Construct2D is a grid generator designed to create 2D grids for CFD computations on airfoils. The grids are generated in Plot3D format. The only required input file is the set of coordinates defining the airfoil geometry, using the same format as XFoil, the popular vortex-panel code for airfoil analysis. Construct2D can create grids with O topology (recommended for airfoils with a blunt trailing edge) or C topology (recommended for airfoils with a sharp trailing edge). Now available in version 2.0: hyperbolic grid generation to create higher quality grids in a fraction of the time compared to elliptic grid generation. Elliptic grid generation is still available also. Smooth airfoil surface spacing is handled automatically with user-controlled clustering parameters. Also included is a visualizer written in Python with matplotlib.

2DFLT it is first out of two programs which allows implementation of Phase Sensitive Detection (PSD) and/or Modulated Enhanced Diffraction (MED) techniques on the in situ data. This software allows collecting individual data files from in situ experiment into one dataset. After that this data set can be visualized, edited, normalized and averaged. Resulted data can be saved as one flat file (FLT-format) which can be used for PSD/MED calculations via 2DMED software (http://sourceforge.net/projects/twodmed/?source=directory). 2DFLT specifically was written to target in situ X-ray Powder Diffraction data from synchrotron measurements. Hence it can read CHI, XYE (TOPAS), FXYE(GSAS/ GSASII) and XY- files formats. However it can read general in situ data written into individual TXT or XY – files.
