The NIST Guide to Available Mathematical Software was originally developed by

- Ronald F. Boisvert
- Sally E. Howe
- David K. Kahaner
- Jeanne L. Springmann

- Ronald F. Boisvert
- Majorie McClain
- Bruce Miller

We have benefited by the advice and assistance of many others over the years, including Martin Knapp-Cordes, Janice Knapp-Cordes, Michael Strawbridge, Jeanne L. Springmann, and Shirley Browne (who developed the original http gateway). To each of them we offer thanks.

We wish to thank the following for allowing GAMS to redistribute portions of their online documentation : Cray Research, Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) Ltd., Visual Numerics, Inc.

The Guide to Available Mathematical Software (GAMS) documents software that has been made available for use by the staff of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Certain software products, both public-domain and commercial, are identified in GAMS in order to adequately document this software. Identification of such products does not imply recommendation or endorsement by NIST, nor does it imply that the identified software is the best available. Conversely, the omission of any such software does not imply its unsuitability for use.

While GAMS provides information about software available on various computers, access to some computers and associated software may be restricted.

GAMS is a service of the Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division / Information Technology Laboratory / National Institute of Standards and Technology
