AM In the comp.lang.tcl newsgroup cuneyt announced the following:

At the following website you'll find a software called EasyNumerics.


It is written in pure Tcl/Tk. I developed it to use in my numerical methods course as a teaching tool. It is designed to be used in a typical undergraduate level numerical methods course for engineers. It can solve problems about

  • Root Finding
  • Solution of Linear Algebraic Equations
  • Optimization
  • Curve Fitting
  • Numerical Differentiation & Integration
  • Solution of ODEs

If you are also interested in doing math with Tcl/Tk, please feel free to download and use it. It is only tested by myself and my students, so I am sure there are many bugs in it, but still it can do quite a lot of things.

I will be very very happy to hear your feedback. If you have any suggestions or any feature that you think will improve the software, please let me know.


AM In a follow-up post, the author posted this reference: https://peer.asee.org/a-tutor-program-for-a-numerical-methods-course-for-engineers.pdf to a paper describing the software.

RMG Why can't I get to the link above? Does anyone else have this software so I might procure a copy for Windows XP?

The link is working OK. Maybe some temporary problems with the server. Send me an email at cuneytATmeDOTmetuDOTeduDOTtr and I can send you the source. Cuneyt Sert

AM (19 january 2011) The project has recently been put here: http://code.google.com/p/easynumerics/ (I have not found the paper though)

uniquename 2013sep17 - In 2013, downloads for Windows and Linux versions were still here: http://www.metu.edu.tr/~csert/EasyNumerics/download.html
