- One choice for a computer symbolic solver is Sage which is open source (free) software. It is not as intuitive as Mathematica, but neither does it have the price tag of Mathematica.
- The compiler and software development system we are
using in the lab are freely available. For best results
you need to install them in the following order.
- The compiler comes as part of MinGW. The software can be downloaded here, the current version is MinGW-5.1.6.exe and provides the GNU C++ compiler (g++). Be sure to accept the default locations the installer suggests.
- Once you have downloaded and installed the compiler you will need to get the eclipse software development system for C++. It is available for download here. and is called "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers". After you install eclipse it should automatically detect the MinGW software and be ready to work.
