Question Any software out there that will do complex integrals like maple/mathlab?


Hello everyone. I was wondering if there are any programs out there like Maple/mathlab/matlab that can compute complex integrals and other math topics. If so could you direct me to their website? thank you!

Not sure about the url, but google for scilab. It appears to support what you are looking for, and includes a help file for transitioning from matlab.

Maple and Matlab are very much like Maple and Matlab!

hand of fate probably means that there are Linux versions of Maple and MATLAB (but I guess that like the Windows versions, they cost a lot!). Take a look at the free/open source section here. I don't have experience with any of these so can't recommend one over another.

You didn't specify other programs in your original post.

Maple and Matlab are the best known mathematical programs, and the only ones I've used to any great extent.

You might like to check out Maxima (basically a Maple equivalent) and Octave (basically a MATLAB equivalent). Both these programs are free, but neither has all the features of Maple or MATLAB. Considering how expensive these programs are, the cost saving may well justify the loss of some features.

I've never used Scilab, but I know it's a numerical package (like MATLAB or Octave), so it won't be able to do symbolic integration or differentiation. If you need something to do any symbolic manipulation, you need a symbolic package like Maple or Maxima.

Thanks everyone, I actually just went out and bought a Ti-89 that will do the integrals for me, a well spent 150 dollars!
