GAP Alternatives

GAP is described as 'system for computational discrete algebra, with particular emphasis on Computational Group Theory. GAP provides a programming language, a library of thousands of functions implementing algebraic algorithms written in the GAP language as well as large data libraries of' and is an app. There are more than 10 alternatives to GAP for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and Android. The best alternative is GNU Octave, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like GAP are Mathematica, MATLAB, SageMath and Maxima.

GAP alternatives are mainly Programming Languages but may also be Calculators. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of GAP.
