Purchased Licensed Software
Courant provides access to several software packages that have purchased licenses. Below is a list of the available software and where to access it.
MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computing. It allows easy matrix manipulation, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs in other languages.
Run it: From any compute node or Linux desktop run 'matlab' from a terminal.
Where is it: /opt/matlab
Extra Documentation: Webinars
Individual MATLAB user licenses, which will work without an internet connection, are now
available for NYU faculty, staff, students, and researchers. You'll need to sign up for a
MathWorks account, if you don't have one already, but there is no additional cost.
Here is the link to get started:
Mathematica is a computational software for technical computing. It can be used for computation, modeling, simulation, visualization and various scientific computing tasks.
Run it: From any compute node or Linux desktop run 'mathematica' from a terminal.
Where is it: /opt/mathetmatica
Extra documentation: Webinars, etc.
Note: as of 2021/04/14
NYU has made single sign-on (SSO) available for both Mathematica Online and Wolfram|Alpha Pro. Going forward, you'll notice some changes in the way you sign in to the following Wolfram products and websites.
- Wolfram Cloud (including Mathematica Online)
- Wolfram|Alpha Pro
- Wolfram User Portal (to download products, request new activation keys for Mathematica, etc.)
- Wolfram Community (for peer-to-peer support and assistance)
When you sign in to any of the sites above, after entering your email address, you will be given the option to sign in using your Wolfram ID password or NYU login. The first time you choose to sign in with your school login, you will be prompted to link it to your Wolfram ID. You will also automatically be given access to Mathematica Online and Wolfram|Alpha Pro if you don't already have them.
Once linked, you can use your school login to utilize any of the sites above and their associated tasks. Here are some additional ways you'll benefit from single sign-on:
Maple is a general-purpose computer algebra system for mathematical computation and modeling.
Run it: From any compute node or Linux desktop run 'xmaple' from a terminal.
Where is it: /opt/maple
Intel Compiler Suite
Intel Compiler Suite contains compilers for C/C++ and Fortran with multi-threading support and advanced processor specific optimizations.
See documentation from the appropriate compiler: /opt/intel/COMPILER/VERSION/doc (where COMPILER is which compiler you want to use and VERSION is the current version)
Where is it: /opt/intel/
Intel Math Kernel Library
Intel® Math Kernel Library is a library of highly optimized, extensively threaded math routines for science, engineering, and financial applications.
See documentation from the library: /opt/intel/mkl/current/doc
Where is it: /opt/intel/mkl
TotalView® debugger is a GUI based dynamic source code and memory debugging tool for C, C++ and Fortran applications.
Run it: From any of the Linux compute node or Linux desktop run 'totalview' from a terminal.
Where is it: /opt/totalview
Magma is a software package designed to solve computationally hard problems in algebra, number theory, geometry and combinatorics. It provides a mathematically rigorous environment for computing with algebraic, number-theoretic, combinatoric, and geometric objects.
See our Magma instructions.
Tecplot is a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and numerical simulation software package used in post-processing simulation results.
Run it: From any compute node or Linux desktop run 'teplot' from a terminal.
Where is it: /opt/tecplot
