LibreBlackjack is a blackjack engine that emulates a dealer, deals cards and understands commands such as hit or stand. The basic idea is that one or more players can talk to LibreBlackjack either in an interactive or automated way through a number of standard IPC procedures. These players can be actual human players playing in real-time through a front-end (a GUI application, a web-based interface, a mobile app, etc.) or robots that implement a certain betting and playing strategy playing (i.e. card counting) as fast as possible to study and analyze game statistics. There is an internal player that reads the strategy from a text file and plays accordingly. It can also be used to play interactive ASCII blackjack.

Fino is a free and open source tool that uses the finite-element method to solve steady-state thermo-mechanical problems, or steady or transient heat conduction problems, or modal analysis problems. It is particularly designed to handle complex dependence of material properties (i.e. temperature-dependent properties). It can also perform parametric or optimization runs. The domain over which the problem is solved should be a grid generated by Gmsh. The material properties and boundary conditions may involve arbitrary dependence of space associated to physical entities defined in the mesh.

Milonga is a free core-level neutronic code that solves the steady-state multigroup neutron transport equation using either the diffusion approximation, or the discrete ordinates method over unstructured grids (although simple structured grids can also be used) based on either a finite-volumes, or a finite-elements discretization scheme. It works on top of the wasora framework, which provides means to parse and understand a high-level plain-text input file containing algebraic expressions, data for function interpolation, differential equations and output instructions amongst other facilities. Therefore, any mathematical computation which can be done by wasora—i.e. parametric calculations, multidimensional optimization, function interpolation and integration, etc.—can be combined with the facilities that milonga provides to solve the neutron diffusion equation.

Wasora is a (relatively) high-level tool to perform mathematical computations. It also provides a framework which other particular computational codes can use. It is a free computational tool designed to aid a cognizant expert—i.e. you, whether an engineer, scientist, technician, geek, etc.—to analyze complex systems by solving mathematical problems by means of a high-level plain-text input file containing algebraic expressions, data for function interpolation, differential equations, and output instructions among other facilities. See SP-WA-15-TD-9E3D-B for a techical description.
