Comments about SageMath as a Alternative to MathematicaAlmost everyone thinks SageMath is a great Mathematica alternative.Guest
It can calculate many things symbolically and combines many other software packages.2Guest
Its free and sounds capable0
Sage supports symbolic maths through Maxima2Guest
Sage needs programming language skills, it doesn't support well symbolic math.-16

Comments about R (programming language) as a Alternative to MathematicaMost users think R (programming language) is a great Mathematica alternative.Guest
R is really only useful for statistics, and not even mathematical statistics.-3
Maxima is a system for the manipulation of symbolic and numerical expressions, including differentiation, integration, Taylor series, Laplace transforms, ordinary differential equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials, and sets, lists, vectors, matrices, and tensors.
Comments about Maxima as a Alternative to MathematicaAlmost everyone thinks Maxima is a great Mathematica alternative.Guest
It's free. It is also smaller, so starts up fast. Runs on Android devices as well. Lot's of functionality, including symbolic and numerical operations. Symbolic operations are not as extensive as Mathematica, but adequate for many operations. Numeric operations are considerably slower than Mathematica, and numerically oriented apps such as R, Matlab or Octave.4Guest
I'm a theoretical physicist and I can do almost al the math I need with Mxima3
It does support Symbolic math, but Matlab or Octave not-2

Comments about Jupyter as a Alternative to MathematicaMost users think Jupyter is a great Mathematica alternative.Guest
It can run python inline and do markup work all in one system. Can be worked via network and connected to via browser (including through phone) and set up to run distributed computing systems easily. Additionally it's open source and server side runs on most major operating systems.0
MATLAB is a numerical computing environment and programming language. Maintained by The MathWorks, MATLAB allows easy matrix manipulation, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs in other languages.

Comments about MATLAB as a Alternative to MathematicaSome users think MATLAB is a great Mathematica alternative, some don't.all • positive • negative relevance • date
Both are comprehensive mathematics solutions, and have very similar features, as well as even both being commercial.-2Guest
Mathematica is mainly a CAS (symbolic maths), but MATLAB is more for numeric analysis7Guest
MATLAB is mainly for numerics1Guest
MATLAB can do symbolic math but it's far less convenient2Guest
Mathematica is not only for numerics, its for analysis, while Matlab is primarily for numerics.0Show more comments ▾5 of 7 comments

Comments about Julia as a Alternative to MathematicaAlmost everyone thinks Julia is a great Mathematica alternative.Guest
It's an easy, powerful, really fast language which feels like a mix of Python and Ruby but runs like C. It comes with many mathematical functions, has a good stack of libraries for graphs (including Matplotlib as PyPlot) and can be used with the Jupyter Notebook. Still not at version 1.0, but already a great tool!-1
