MatLab

MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.”

Additionally there are MatLab tools and functions e.g. on the website of the USGS e.g. relating to earthquakes: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/software/
