Euler Math Toolbox

This is the homepage of Euler Math Toolbox (EMT), a powerful math program combining numerical and symbolic tools (using the computer algebra system Maxima) in one free and open source package. Its idea is similar to Matlab, but the syntax is not exactly compatible. The project was started in 1987 by Rene Grothmann, professor of mathematics in Eichstätt, Germany, and became a full package for mathematical exploration and teaching over the years.

The main design goal of Euler Math Toolbox is to provide a clean and simple surface that gives easy access to powerful tools.

Euler Math Toolbox is free to use for anyone without costs or loyalties under the GPL license. It is also an open source program, hosted on SourceForge and supports the idea of open software and libraries.

The program runs on Windows 7, 8 or 10, 32-bit or 64-bit. The most recent version supports only Windows 8 or above with 64-bit, and the most recent Ubuntu through the stable Wine emulator.

EMT is for you if

  • you are looking for a mighty, easy to use and free substitute for Matlab,
  • you need to do symbolic algebra or numerical mathematics in school or university,
  • you are a student or a teacher and want to demonstrate mathematics,
  • you want to make good looking mathematical illustrations or even photo realistic scenes,
  • you have a need to present mathematics on web pages.

In case the program is not known to you and you want to learn more about the program, have a look on this overview, or go directly to the tutorial First Steps. A log page of Recent Updates is also available. EMT is on Facebook and Youtube too.

Euler Math Toolbox is constantly updated and in active development. The current version is "Version 2021-04-30".
