Physorg has an article about the Sage software package.


Until recently, a student solving a calculus problem, a physicist
modeling a galaxy or a mathematician studying a complex equation had
to use powerful computer programs that cost hundreds or thousands of
dollars. But an open-source tool based at the University of Washington
won first prize in the scientific software division of Les Trophées du
Libre, an international competition for free software.

Sage can take the place of commercial software commonly used in
mathematics education, in large government laboratories and in
math-intensive research. The program can do anything from mapping a
12-dimensional object to calculating rainfall patterns under global

Use SAGE for studying a huge range of mathematics, including algebra,
calculus, elementary to very advanced number theory, cryptography,
numerical computation, commutative algebra, group theory,
combinatorics, graph theory, and exact linear algebra.
