    PyDSTool Alternatives

    PyDSTool is described as 'sophisticated & integrated simulation and analysis environment for dynamical systems models of physical systems (ODEs, DAEs, maps, and hybrid systems)'. There are more than 10 alternatives to PyDSTool for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and Android. The best alternative is MATLAB. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try SciPy & Numpy or Spyder. Other great apps like PyDSTool are Xcos (Free, Open Source), OpenModelica (Free, Open Source), COMSOL Multiphysics (Paid) and PTC Creo (Paid).
