Modelling software

Software installed on SPAN's Research Computer System enables different analysis and modelling capabilities for a variety of research disciplines:

MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualisation, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notation. Typical uses include:

  • Maths and computation
  • Algorithm development
  • Data acquisition
  • Modelling, simulation, and prototyping
  • Data analysis, exploration, and visualisation
  • Scientific and engineering graphics
  • Application development, including graphical user interface building

Mathematica is renowned as the world's ultimate application for computations. But it's much more—it's the only development platform fully integrating computation into complete workflows, moving you seamlessly from initial ideas all the way to deployed individual or enterprise solutions. Typical uses include:

  • Data manipulation
  • Mathematics and Algorithms
  • Visualisation and Graphics
  • Dynamic Interactivity
  • Computable Data

Maple helps you analyse, explore, visualize, and solve mathematical problems quickly, easily and accurately. Typical uses include:

  • Advanced Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Visualisation
  • Scientific Data Management
  • String Processing and Linguistic Research
  • Parallel and Grid Computing

Access to SPAN's Research Computer System is available to Charles Sturt University academics and research students.
