Summary
Mathematics
Debian Science Mathematics packages
This metapackage will install Debian Science packages related to
Mathematics. You might also be interested in the field::mathematics
debtag and, depending on your focus, in the educationmathematics
metapackage.
The list to the right includes various software projects which are of some interest to the Debian Science Project. Currently, only a few of them are available as Debian packages. It is our goal, however, to include all software in Debian Science which can sensibly add to a high quality Debian Pure Blend.
For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:
If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Science
to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to
send a description of that project to the Debian Science mailing list

Agda is a dependently typed functional programming language: It has inductive
families, which are like Haskell's GADTs, but they can be indexed by values and
not just types. It also has parameterised modules, mixfix operators, Unicode
characters, and an interactive Emacs interface (the type checker can assist in
the development of your code).
Agda is also a proof assistant: It is an interactive system for writing and
checking proofs. Agda is based on intuitionistic type theory, a foundational
system for constructive mathematics developed by the Swedish logician Per
MartinLöf. It has many similarities with other proof assistants based on
dependent types, such as Coq, Epigram and NuPRL.
This is a meta package which provides Agda's emacs mode, executable, standard
library and its documentation.

FreeFem++ is an implementation of a language dedicated to the finite
element method. It enables you to solve Partial Differential
Equations (PDE) easily.
Problems involving PDE from several branches of physics such as
fluidstructure interactions require interpolations of data on
several meshes and their manipulation within one program. FreeFem++
includes a fast quadtreebased interpolation algorithm and a language
for the manipulation of these data on multiple meshes. It contains
also a powerful mesh generation and adaption tool integrated
seamlessly in FreeFem++ called bamg.
FreeFem++ is written in C++ and the FreeFem++ language is a C++ idiom
allowing for a smooth learning curve.

FreeFEM3D (aka ff3d) is a 3D solver of partial differential
equations (PDE). It is a member of the familly of the freefem
programs (see http://www.freefem.org).
ff3d, as well as its cousins, is a PDE solver driven by a
userfriendly language. It solves many kind of problems such as
elasticity, fluids (Stokes and NavierStokes) and a lot more. The
user has to enter the equation associated with the problem, giving
either the PDE in strong formulation or weak (variational)
formulation.
ff3d can use either the Finite Elements method (the mesh of the
geometry being provided by the user) or a Fictitious Domain like
approach where the geometry is described using Constructive Solid
Geometry (CSG). This description is done using the POVRay language
but others such as VRML could be added.
The processing of the results is left to the user. One can use
various graphic tools: output in the MEdit mesh format or VTK are
supported. The implementation of a VTK base visualization module is
underway.
The goal of ff3d is to provide a good teaching tool and a research
toolbox (the code is written in C++ and its design is such that new
methods can be easily implemented).

(including lighting, shading, and materials), picking on an
object, edge or vertex level, snapshots in SGI image file or
Renderman RIB format, and adding or deleting objects is provided
through direct mouse manipulation, control panels, and keyboard
shortcuts. External programs can drive desired aspects of the
viewer (such as continually loading changing geometry or
controlling the motion of certain objects) while allowing
interactive control of everything else.

Gfan is a software package for computing Groebner fans and tropical
varieties. These are polyhedral fans associated to polynomial
ideals. The maximal cones of a Groebner fan are in bijection with
the marked reduced Groebner bases of its defining ideal. The
software computes all marked reduced Groebner bases of an ideal.
Their union is a universal Groebner basis. The tropical variety of a
polynomial ideal is a certain subcomplex of the Groebner fan. Gfan
contains algorithms for computing this complex for general ideals and
specialized algorithms for tropical curves, tropical hypersurfaces
and tropical varieties of prime ideals. In addition to the above core
functions the package contains many tools which are useful in the
study of Groebner bases, initial ideals and tropical geometry. Among
these are an interactive traversal program for Groebner fans and
programs for graphical renderings.
For ordinary Groebner basis computations Gfan is not competitive in
speed compared to programs such as CoCoA, Singular and Macaulay2.

The linear programming (LP) problem can be formulated as: Solve A.x >=
V1, with V2.x maximal. A is a matrix, x is a vector of (nonnegative)
variables, V1 is a vector called the right hand side, and V2 is a vector
specifying the objective function.
An integer linear programming (ILP) problem is an LP with the
constraint that all the variables are integers. In a mixed integer
linear programming (MILP) problem, some of the variables are integer
and others are real.
The program lp_solve solves LP, ILP, and MILP problems. It is slightly
more general than suggested above, in that every row of A (specifying
one constraint) can have its own (in)equality, <=, >= or =. The result
specifies values for all variables.
lp_solve uses the 'Simplex' algorithm and sparse matrix methods for
pure LP problems. If one or more of the variables is declared
integer, the Simplex algorithm is iterated with a branch and bound
algorithm, until the desired optimal solution is found. lp_solve can
read MPS format input files.

A convex polyhedron is the set of points satisfying a finite family
of linear inequalities. The study of the vertices and extreme rays
of such systems is important and useful in e.g. mathematics and
optimization. In a dual interpretation, finding the vertices of a
(bounded) polyhedron is equivalent to finding the convex hull
(bounding inequalities) of an (arbitrary dimensional) set of points.
Lrs (lexicographic reverse search) has two important features that
can be very important for certain applications: it works in exact
arithmetic, and it consumes memory proportional to the input, no
matter how large the output is.

PARI/GP Computer Algebra System extra data files


License: DFSG free

PARI/GP is a widely used computer algebra system designed for fast
computations in number theory (factorizations, algebraic number theory,
elliptic curves...), but also contains a large number of other useful
functions to compute with mathematical entities such as matrices, polynomials,
power series, algebraic numbers, etc., and a lot of transcendental functions.
PARI is also available as a C library to allow for faster computations.
Originally developed by Henri Cohen and his coworkers (University Bordeaux I,
France), PARI is now under the GPL and maintained by Karim Belabas with the
help of many volunteer contributors.
This is a dummy package which depends on
parigaldata: the Galois resolvants for the polgalois function.
parielldata: the elliptic curves database for the ellsearch function.
pariseadata: the modular polynomials for the ellap function.
It can be safely removed after the upgrade.

This package provides the Prover9 resolution/paramodulation theorem
prover and the Mace4 countermodel generator.
Prover9 is an automated theorem prover for firstorder and equational
logic. It is a successor of the Otter prover. Prover9 uses the
inference techniques of ordered resolution and paramodulation with
literal selection.
The program Mace4 searches for finite structures satisfying firstorder
and equational statements, the same kind of statement that Prover9
accepts. If the statement is the denial of some conjecture, any
structures found by Mace4 are counterexamples to the conjecture.
Mace4 can be a valuable complement to Prover9, looking for
counterexamples before (or at the same time as) using Prover9 to search
for a proof. It can also be used to help debug input clauses and formulas
for Prover9.

The FEniCS Form Compiler FFC provides stateoftheart automatic and efficient
evaluation of general multilinear forms (variational formulations) for FEniCS.
FFC functions as the form evaluation system for DOLFIN but can also be used to
compile forms for other systems.
FFC works as a compiler for multilinear forms by generating code (C or C++)
for the evaluation of a multilinear form given in mathematical notation. This
new approach to form evaluation makes it possible to combine generality with
efficiency; the form can be given in mathematical notation and the generated
code is as efficient as handoptimized code.

Rheolef is a computer environment that serves as a convenient
laboratory for computations in applied mathematics involving finite
elementlike methods. It provides a set of commands and C++ algorithms
and containers.
Most basically, containers cover the classic graph data structure for
sparse matrix formats and finite element meshes. At a higher level of
abstraction, they can handle approximate finite element spaces, discrete
fields. Flexible and powerful expressions are used to specify bilinear forms.
Current applications include:
 massively distributed memory finite element environment, based on MPI;
 Poisson problems in d=1,2 and 3 dimension with high order Lagrange elements,
up to fifth order;
 linear elasticity, including incompressible and nearly incompressible
elasticity;
 Stokes problems in d=2 or 3 dimension, with P2P1 or P1 bubbleP1 elements;
 characteristic method for convectiondiffusion, timedependent
problems and NavierStokes equations;
 nonlinear problems with either fixedpoint algorithms or a provided generic
damped Newton solver;
 autoadaptive mesh approaches;
 axisymmetric problems;
 multiregions and variable coefficient problems.
This package provides the rheolef commands. These support input and
output in various file formats for meshgenerators and numerical data
visualization systems such as MayaVi, Paraview, and gnuplot.

Its purpose is to apply graph theory, with a divide and conquer
approach, to scientific computing problems such as graph and mesh
partitioning, static mapping, and sparse matrix ordering, in
application domains ranging from structural mechanics to operating
systems or biochemistry.
The SCOTCH distribution is a set of programs and libraries which
implement the static mapping and sparse matrix reordering algorithms
developed within the SCOTCH project.
SCOTCH has many interesting features:

Its capabilities can be used through a set of standalone programs
as well as through the libSCOTCH library, which offers both C and
Fortran interfaces.

It provides algorithms to partition graph structures, as well as
mesh structures defined as nodeelement bipartite graphs and which
can also represent hypergraphs.

It can map any weighted source graph onto any weighted target
graph. The source and target graphs may have any topology, and their
vertices and edges may be weighted. Moreover, both source and target
graphs may be disconnected. This feature allows for the mapping of
programs onto disconnected subparts of a parallel architecture made
up of heterogeneous processors and communication links.

It computes amalgamated block orderings of sparse matrices, for
efficient solving using BLAS routines.

Its running time is linear in the number of edges of the source
graph, and logarithmic in the number of vertices of the target graph
for mapping computations.

It can handle indifferently graph and mesh data structures created
within C or Fortran programs, with array indices starting from 0 or
1.

It offers extended support for adaptive graphs and meshes through
the handling of disjoint edge arrays.

It is dynamically parametrizable thanks to strategy strings that
are interpreted at runtime.

It uses system memory efficiently, to process large graphs and
meshes without incurring outofmemory faults;

It is highly modular and documented. Since it has been released
under the CeCILLC free/libre software license, it can be used as a
testbed for the easy and quick development and testing of new
partitioning and ordering methods.

It can be easily interfaced to other programs. The programs
comprising the SCOTCH project have been designed to run in
commandline mode without any interactive prompting, so that they can
be called easily from other programs by means of system() or popen()
calls, or piped together on a single command line. Moreover, vertex
labeling capabilities allow for easy renumbering of vertices.

It provides many tools to build, check, and display graphs, meshes
and matrix patterns.

It is written in C and uses the POSIX interface, which makes it
highly portable. PTSCOTCH uses the MPI interface, and optionally the
POSIX threads.

Tachyon is a portable, high performance parallel ray tracing system
supporting MPI and multithreaded implementations. Tachyon is built
as a C callable library, which can be used with the included demo
programs or within your own application. The distribution also
includes a simple scene file parser frontend which reads a few
different formats.
Tachyon implements all of the basic geometric primitives such as
triangles, planes, spheres, cylinders, etc. Some of the goals in
developing Tachyon were to make it fast and for it to parallelize
well. These are what set it apart from more fullfeatured programs
like POVRay, Rayshade, and others. Tachyon supports enough features
to be an excellent alternative to slower programs for demanding
animation and scientific visualization tasks. As time goes on,
Tachyon will indeed incorporate more features, but with a continued
emphasis on rendering performance.
