Basé sur le projet C.a.R. (Compass and Ruler), CaRMetal inclut toutes ses fonctionnalités ou presque. Il propose une approche différente de l'interface graphique.

 — les constructions à la règle et au compas peuvent être modifiées en
   déplaçant un des points de construction. La construction suit
   immédiatement. L'étudiant peut vérifier que sa construction est
   correcte et renforcer son intuition ;
 – le suivi de points et les constructions animées peuvent aider à
   comprendre les relations géométriques. Les suivis peuvent servir de
   nouveaux objets à explorer ;
 — avec les macros de C.a.R., les constructions très compliquées
   deviennent possibles. Les macros sont aussi un moyen d'organiser la
   pensée géométrique ;
 — masquer les détails de construction et utiliser des couleurs clarifient
   la lecture des constructions. Dans C.a.R., les lignes et cercles
   peuvent aussi être réduits aux points pertinents ;
 — les calculs arithmétiques, les solutions numériques, les courbes et les
   fonctions vont au-delà des constructions classiques. Il est même
   possible de construire en 3D avec des macros évoluées ;
 — d'autres géométries, hyperboliques ou elliptiques, peuvent être
   explorées ;
 — il est possible de scripter les figures en JavaScript.

This is the Gtk interactive geometry software. It allows one to create geometric figure plus the interactive manipulation of such figure in respect with their geometric constraints. It is usable in teaching situation with students from primary or secondary level.

Dr. Geo comes with a complete set of tools arranged in different categories:

  • points
  • lines
  • geometric transformations
  • numeric function
  • macro-construction
  • DGS object - Dr. Geo Guile Script
  • DSF - Dr Geo Scheme Figure, it is interactive figure defined in a file and evaluated with the embedded Scheme interpretor, awesome!
  • Export facilities in the LaTeX and EPS formats

Several figures and macro-constructions examples are available in the /usr/share/drgeo/examples folder.

More information about Dr. Geo can be found at its web site http://www.gnu.org/software/dr_geo/dr_geo.html

Installing the drgeo-doc package is also encouraged to get more of Dr. Geo.

GeoGebra est un système de géométrie dynamique. Il est possible de réaliser des constructions avec des points, des vecteurs, des segments, des lignes, des sections coniques ainsi que de les modifier dynamiquement par la suite. Il est également possible d'entrer directement des équations et coordonnées.

Le logiciel gère de nombreuses constructions géométriques ainsi que de nombreux outils élémentaires basés sur les calculs (dérivées, cercle osculateur, etc.).

Les fichiers GeoGebra peuvent être exportés vers de nombreux formats, ainsi que vers des applets interactives pour des pages web.

Ce paquet contient le créateur de miniatures KDE pour le format de fichier GeoGebra.

CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library) makes the most important of the solutions and methods developed in computational geometry available to users in industry and academia in a C++ library. The goal is to provide easy access to useful, reliable geometric algorithms.

This package contains most of the header files. The header files for visualization with Qt can be found in the package libcgal-qt5-dev.

This package contains several different Rubik's cube solvers, either useful directly on the command-line or through sagemath.

Michael Reid's "optimal" uses pre-computed tables to find an optimal solution to the 3x3x3 Rubik's cube.

Dik T.Winter's "dikcube" uses Kociemba's algorithm to iteratively find a short solution to the 3x3x3 cube.

Eric Dietz' "cubex" has fast non-optimal solver for the 3x3x3 cube.

Packaging has started and developers might try the packaging code in VCS
