Physics Software - OSIVVisit Site: OSIV

Cost: Free

Comments: Free and open source image analysis software.

Description: OSIV is a program written to perform cross-correlation analysis of particle image velocimetry (PIV) images. The program was designed to be both very modular and quite efficient. It incorporates most of the tried-and-true algorithms and some of the more recent additions to the PIV toolkit. Importantly, OSIV is released open source so that users may contribute back to the project.

Physics Software - GAMESSVisit Site: GAMESS

Cost: Free

Comments: Free and open source physics software.

Description: GAMESS is a program for ab initio molecular quantum chemistry. Briefly, GAMESS can compute SCF wavefunctions ranging from RHF, ROHF, UHF, GVB, and MCSCF. Correlation corrections to these SCF wavefunctions include Configuration Interaction, second order perturbation Theory, and Coupled-Cluster approaches, as well as the Density Functional Theory approximation.
