MATHLIB VAX/VMS operating system 
Description  MATHLIB is a general purpose interactive mathematical workbench for research and design that fills the need for an analysis tool which is simple enough for an inexperienced user but sophisticated enough to realistically cope with the complex problems encountered in mathematical and scientific research. MATHLIB is an effective tool for obtaining accurate results in a useful format for everything from plotting a set of simple data points to solving a large system of differential equations. It was designed to run under the VAX/VMS operating system. MATHLIB was written by Ned Freed '82 (Engineering), Dan Newman '85 (math) and Kevin Carosso '82 (Physics) while they were students at Harvey Mudd College in the early 1980's. When MATHLIB became too expensive to keep up, the company Innosoft International, Inc., was set up to market MATHLIB and thus generate funds for its upkeep. After a few years it became clear that MATHLIB could not compete with Mathematica and MATLAB and other such packages and so Innosoft decided to mothball MATHLIB and assign rights for its ownership and use back to the HMC Mathematics Department in the early 1990's. Unfortunately, the VAX operating system is no longer being supported and so MATHLIB is mostly of historical interest today. Even so, there is one machine at HMC that still runs VMS on which MATHLIB resides, and users with access to that machine can run MATHLIB. See the MATHLIB User's Guide and the MATHLIB Example Set for help in using MATHLIB.
