Polymath™ is an easy-to-use numerical computation package that allows students and professionals to use personal computers to solve the following types of problems:
- Simultaneous Linear Algebraic Equations
- Simultaneous Nonlinear Algebraic Equations
- Simultaneous Ordinary Differential Equations
Data Regressions (including the following)
- Curve Fitting by Polynomials and Splines
- Multiple Linear Regression with Statistics
- Nonlinear Regression with Statistics
Polymath™ is unique in that the problems are entered just like their mathematical equations, and there is a minimal learning curve. Problem solutions are easily found with robust algorithms. This allows very convenient problem solving to be used in chemical reaction engineering and other areas of chemical engineering, leading to an enhanced educational experience for students.
Polymath Trial Version
The trial version of Polymath provided will execute for 15 days
The main Polymath website: www.polymath-software.com
The current Polymath Educational version allows the user to solve up to 30 simultaneous ordinary differential equations, 30 simultaneous nonlinear algebraic equations, and 40 explicit algebraic equations. There is a Polymath Professional version that deals with much larger problems that is available from the main Polymath website, and this version must be used for all professional work.
