[racket] Racket in computational science?

I should also add that Neal wrote the new plot package which is wonderful
for analysis work. I've rewritten my large analysis packages using the plot
package and they work great [As Matthias said, it isn't something I can
release publicly, but could share some sanitized screen shots and talk
about general capabilities off line.]

I have some very simple examples of the plot package in a GUI setting in
the animated-canvas collection. But, they really don't do it justice.

The re-write of the Simulation collection is using the new plot package and
the new math collection.
