GELDA is a Fortran77 software package for the numerical integration of general linear differential-algebraic equations (DAE) with variable coefficients of arbitrary index. The implementation of GELDA is based on the construction of the discretization scheme, which first determines all the local invariants and then transforms the linear DAE into an equivalent strangeness-free DAE with the same solution set. The resulting strangeness-free system is allowed to have nonuniqueness in the solution set or inconsistency in the initial values or inhomogeneities. In the case that the DAE is found to be uniquely solvable, GELDA is able to compute a consistent initial value and apply the well-known integration schemes for DAEs. In GELDA the BDF methods and Runge-Kutta schemes are implemented.

GEOMS is a Fortran77 software package for the numerical integration of general model equations (equations of motion) of multibody systems. The code combines a regularization technique with the Runge-Kutta method of type Radau IIa of order 5. This regularization technique reduces the index under preservation of all information of the solution manifold and, therefore, allows a robust numerical integration of the system.

Scilab is a numerical computation system similiar to Matlab or Simulink. Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions, and programs from various languages (such as C or Fortran) can be added interactively. It has sophisticated data structures (including lists, polynomials, rational functions, and linear systems), an interpreter, and a high-level programming language. Scilab has been designed to be an open system where the user can define new data types and operations on these data types by using overloading. A number of toolboxes are available with the system.
