B Programs like Wolfram but offline

  1. Jul 5, 2016 #1
    Hello and sorry for the bad english.
    I 'm looking for a program like wolfram alpha but offline, currently I use a program called "derive 6". It is good but it stopped updating for quite So I would like to tell me some similar program to wolfram alpha but not need connection to intenet, and that updtate or at least not very old like derive.

    Use Sage, it successfully incorporates many other software packages. It's the best thing out there.

    Thank to all, I'll take a look at the programs and maybe I had to be a little more specific,
    usually what I need is :
    integration (indefinite or definite)
    algebraic simplification
    calculating sums ∑ and products ∏
    taylor expancion
    gamma function
    riemann zeta function
    (step by step soluction)
    I think that is all.

    thank you very much :biggrin:

    You can try Pari-GP.
    It has some if not all the functions you mentioned and can do arbitrary precision arithmetic ( no limit on the number of digits or precision).
    It is a free program.

    Mathematica IS Wolfram Alpha (and free), so that is definitely worth downloading. A different kind of math program but incredibly useful is Geogebra (also free).

    Thanks to all who contributed.
    maple has almost all the things I neeed also it has a converter to LaTex which facilitates post here, mathematica is great but it requires internet connection.
    so when I do not have internet and I can not use wolfram, i use maple.
