Licensed Math Software

Certain software of interest to mathematicians must be licensed to use. For office machines and laptops assigned to a single user, you do the licensing yourself (see below). For shared lab machines (and shared multi-student grad office machines), we handle the licensing.

AIMMS
(On-campus or limited Student version)

There is neither a university-wide nor a department license. This software must be licensed on an individual basis. Please consult with us before making a purchase.

COMSOL

There is neither a university-wide nor a department license. This software must be licensed on an individual basis. Please consult with us before making a purchase.

Magma
(Locked to individual Computers)

There is a department license for a specific number of seats (all in use). This software is installed on chaos1, chaos2, and chaos3. To install the software on your office or home system, additional seats would have to be purchased.

Maple
(Individual activation or Network License)

There is a campus-wide license. You can download the software, and obtain a license activation code, by going to TigerWare.

Mathematica
(Individual activation or Network License)

There is a campus-wide license. You can download the software, and obtain a license activation code, by going to TigerWare. For office machines and home machines, please manage your own activation. But for lab machines and shared multi-person grad office machines, please contact us to manage the activation.

Matlab
(on-campus network license only)

There is a department-wide license for a certain number of floating seats, meaning a certain number of persons can be running the software simultaneously. If you launch Matlab and are told there is a licensing problem, please let us know.

Note that Mathworks sells a time-limited student version specifically for use in coursework, at a relatively low cost. Check the Mathworks website for current pricing and time limitations.
