I am the author of the following libraries for the computer algebra system SINGULAR, which are included in the distribution:

olga.libConstructive computations in Ore-localized G-algebras.
ncloc.libNew data type ncloc for Ore localizations, to be used with olga.lib.
ncfrac.libNew data type ncfrac for non-commutative fractions in Ore localizations, to be used with olga.lib and ncloc.lib.


I am the author of the following libraries for the Julia language:

NCDist.jlNCDist.jl is a Julia package to compute distributions as well as Brown measures of (self-adjoint) rational expressions and matrix-valued elements given the distributions of the variables. (joint work with Tobias Mai)
