Extrema is a powerful visualization and data analysis tool that enables researchers to quickly distill their large, complex data sets into meaningful information. Its flexibility, sophistication, and power allow you to easily develop your own commands and create highly customized graphs.

Earlier versions of Extrema have been released by TRIUMF under the product name Physica.

The Extrema Advantage

All the power and flexibility of Extrema's versatile command language is now available from its rich graphical user interface.

Although Extrema's command language is already known for its intuitive syntax and ease of use, the graphical user interface simplifies the process even further, by displaying all the options available. No need to remember how to get that obscure special effect you need; just click the button and it's done!

Even so, the power user often requires the flexibility and programming constructs that are truly only available from a proper command-driven program. All the powerful command line and programming features of previous versions of Extrema are still available.

Extrema's detailed help system includes not just basic help on how to run the program, but also sample scripts, examples of use, sample graphical output, and details of the math and statistical theory underlying different commands and effects.
