I've heard of Mathematica and Mathlab. Also I haven't seen any post dedicating for helping find a software so...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm looking for a function that allows me to do math, including writing my own functions and algorithms. This may or not be a software dedicated to math but it'd really help if it is free.

An example of the possibly messiest things I may want to do is a lot of recursion, example:

For function A find function B:

Algorithm to find B:

-Compute A(1).

-Define a function C based on A(1).

-Compute C(A(1))

-Define a function D based on C(A(1))

Keep doing this 5 times and the last function is B.
