Project GNU of the Free Software Foundation is conducting a survey to

determine the kinds of mathematical software commonly utilized by scientists

and mathematicians. Your answers will help us to determine the programming

tasks we present to our volunteers. This will ultimately result in a more

complete set of math programs and subroutines available as free software.

Please answer the following questions with regard to scientific,

mathematical, and/or statistical software:

1. What packages are commonly used?

2. What programs and subroutines are desired, but not available?

3. What freeware currently exists?

4. Where else can we ask these questions?

Please give as much detail as you can, including package name, author,

language, and where it can be found.

Thank you!
