wasorawasora's an advanced suite for optimization & reactor analysis  
wasora 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 highlevel plaintext input file containing algebraic expressions, data for function interpolation, differential equations and output instructions amongst other facilities. At a first glance, it may look as another highlevel interpreted programming language, but—hopefully—it is not: wasora should be seen as a syntacticallysweetened way to ask a computer to perform a certain mathematical calculation. For example, see below to find how the famous Lorenz system may be solved by writing the three differential equations into a plaintext input file as humanlyfriendly as possible. Although its ultimate subject is optimization, it may hopefully help you with the tough calculations that usually appear when working with problems that have some kind of complexity, allowing the user to focus on what humans perform best—expert judgment and reaching conclusions. Some of its main features include
Almost any single feature included in the code was needed at least once by the author during his career in the nuclear industry. Nevertheless, wasora is aimed at solving general mathematical problems (see below for a description of the wasora Real Book). Should a particular calculation be needed, wasora's features may be extended by the implementation of dynamicallyloaded plugins.
Explaining what a certain piece of software does—especially if it is a technical one—is very hard, as shown by the cryptic description most scientific software package present at their web pages, version control system logs, README files and repository sources. This is by no means an exception, so please before flying away take the time to look at this page and at wasora's Last modification: Thu, 09 Oct 2014 22:20:00 0300.
