  • Julia on Rivanna

    Description Julia is a high-level programming language designed for high-performance numerical analysis and computational science. Distinctive aspects of Julia’s design include a type system with parametric polymorphism and types in a fully dynamic programming language and multiple dispatch as its core programming paradigm. It allows concurrent, parallel and distributed computing, and direct calling of C and Fortran libraries without glue code. A just-in-time compiler that is referred to as “just-ahead-of-time” in the Julia community is used. Ref: Wikipedia There are several website resources for Julia.

  • Mathematica on Rivanna

    Description Mathematica is an integrated technical computing environment that combines numeric and symbolic computation, advanced graphics and visualization, and a high-level programming language. There are several website resources with Mathematica tutorials and parallel Mathematica training sessions. Software Category: For detailed information, visit the Mathematica website. Available Versions To find the available versions and learn how to load them, run: module spider mathematica The output of the command shows the available Mathematica module versions. For detailed information about a particular Mathematica module, including how to load the module, run the module spider command with the module’s full version label. For example: module spider mathematica/11.
  • SAS on Rivanna

    Description Statistical analysis package Software Category: math For detailed information, visit the SAS website. Available Versions To find the available versions and learn how to load them, run: module spider sas The output of the command shows the available SAS module versions. For detailed information about a particular SAS module, including how to load the module, run the module spider command with the module’s full version label. For example: module spider sas/9.4 function getToolchain(parent) { return parent } Module Version Module Load Command sas 9.4 module load sas/9.4 Note: SAS scripts may be run on Rivanna through the SLURM queueing system in batch mode, but production interactive jobs on the frontend are not permitted.
