In short, Aletheia is software for getting science published and into the hands of everyone, for free. It's a decentralised and distributed database used as a publishing platform for scientific research. So, Aletheia is software. But software without people is nothing. To comprehensively answer the question what is Aletheia, Aletheia is software surrounded by a community of people who want to change the world through open access to scientific knowledge. For a more in depth explanation, Aletheia is an Ethereum Blockchain application utilising IPFS for decentralised storage that anyone can upload documents to, download documents from, that also handles the academic peer review process. The application runs on individual PCs, all forming part of the IPFS database. This gives us an open source platform that cannot be bought out by the large publishers (and any derivitive works must also be open source) that should also be hard to take down due to the database being spread across the globe in multiple legal jurisdictions. Aletheia is designed to be a resilient platform run transparently by the community, not some black box corporation or editorial board, meaning all users can see the decisions Aletheia is making and have a stake in that decision making process if they so desire. By this nature, Aletheia is decentralised, it has no key person risk. Should the core group who invented Aletheia dissapear Aletheia won't cease to exist, it will continue to be run by the community. The community moderates content through various mechanisms (peer review, reputation scores etc.,) to ensure quality of content.

The BlockCanvas project provides a visual environment for creating simulation experiments, where function and data are separated. Thus, you can define your simulation algorithm by visually connecting function blocks into a data flow network, and then run it with various data sets (known as "contexts"); likewise, you can use the same context in a different functional simulation. The project provides support for plotting, function searching and inspection, and optimization. It includes a stand-alone application that demonstrates the block-canvas environment, but the same functionality can be incorporated into other applications. The BlockCanvas project relies on included libraries that allow multiple data sets using Numeric arrays to be incorporated in a Traits-based model in a way that is simple, fast, efficient, and consistent.

C-graph Heckert gnu.tiny.png
GNU C-Graph is a tool for visualizing the mathematical operation of convolution underlying natural phenomena susceptible to analysis in terms of engineering signals and systems theory. "C-Graph" is an abbreviation for "Convolution Graph". The package is derived from the BSc. Honours dissertation in Electrical Engineering "Interactive Computer Package Demonstrating: Sampling Convolution and the FFT", Adrienne Gaye Thompson, University of Aberdeen (1983). The package computes the linear convolution of two signals in the time domain then compares their circular convolution by demonstrating the convolution theorem. Each signal is modelled by a register of discrete values simulating samples of a signal, and the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) computed by means of the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). GNU C-Graph is interactive, prompting the user to enter character or numerical values from the keyboard, dispensing with the learning curve for writing code. The software will be useful to students of signals and systems theory. C-Graph is written in contemporary Fortran. You can find pre-GNU development versions at: <>. Adrienne Gaye Thompson is the sole author of GNU C-Graph and looks forward to sharing further development with the Free software community.
A generic and fairly complete cellular automata simulation engine. CAGE is a fairy generic and complete cellular automaton simulation engine in Python.

CAGE comes with numerous examples of fully-functional CA systems, including Conway's Game of Life, Langton's self-reproducing automaton, Langton's "vants," and 1D automata rule explorers. It also comes with simple displayers (including a curses interface for 2D automata). Also included is a unique implementation of a finite state machine (
The tool CCVisu is a light-weight tool for force-directed graph layout. The tool reads the input graph from a file in RSF (Rigi Standard Format), which is a standard text format for relations. The layout of the graph is computed using standard techniques from force-directed layout. The tool supports several energy models, which can be selected by setting command line parameters. The weighted edge-repulsion LinLog energy model (default) is good for producing layouts that fulfill certain clustering criteria. The Fruchterman Reingold energy model is good for producing layouts that fulfill certain esthetic criteria like uniform edge length. CCVisu stores the resulting layout in certain text file formats such as VRML or SVG, or it displays the layout on the screen.

  • Tabular data analysis: Read-write of large datasets stored in HDF5 files are supported, along with ntuple datasets, CSVs, and in-memory data tables. Users can add their own table types by defining 4 methods and extending the table CLOS type.
  • Histograms: Binned data analysis is supported with both contiguous and sparse histogram types; functional interface is provided via map (which allows reduce/fold) and filter.
  • Plotting: Uses gnuplot for plotting dataset samples, plain-old lisp functions, histograms, strings-as-formulae, and anything else the user wishes to add via methods on a couple of generics.
  • Fitting: Uses GSL for non-linear least squares fitting. Uses plain-old lisp functions as the fit functions and can fit against dataset samples, histograms, and whatever the user adds.
  • Generic mathematics: CL doesn't provide extendable math functions, so cl-ana provides these as well as a convenient mechanism (a single function) for using these functions instead of the non-extendable versions. Already included are error propogation and quantities (values with units, e.g. 5 meters) as well as a GNU Octave-style handling of sequences (e.g. (+ (1 2) (3 4)) --> (4 6)).

Eonums is a simple module providing conversion between normal integer numbers and the corresponding textual expression in the Esperano language. It was mainly developped in order to explore the regularity of Esperanto expressions for big integer numbers. Names for 10**k (k = 6, 9, 12, ...) like "miliono" (10**6) or "miliardo" (10**9) are chosen from the so-called "Longa Skalo" as described on this page about big numbers (in Esperanto). The integer numbers eonums can convert to or from such Esperanto expressions can be arbitrarily large, but are limited in practice by the largest number for which there is a name in Esperanto (on the "Longa Skalo")", which is, on the previous page, 10**63 (dekiliardo). Hence, the largest integer you can handle with this module is 10**66 - 1. (This module makes no attempt to extend the Esperanto naming rules by introducing names like "undekiliono", "undekiliardo", "dudekiliono" etc.) This module can be fully translated automatically to Python 3.0 using its migration tool named 2to3. Features
  • convert Python integers to Esperanto integer strings (Unicode)
  • convert Esperanto integer strings (Unicode) to Python integers
  • validate Esperanto integer strings (Unicode)
  • handle integers from 0 to 10**66 - 1
  • provide conversion functions and command-line scripts
  • provide a Unittest test suite
  • can be automatically migrated to Python 3.0 using 2to3
