Download Analytica Free 101

Analytica Free 101, as you might guess, costs nothing!  You can use it to build models with up to 101 variables and other user objects. You can use it to review and run models of any size in Browse mode. In Browse mode, you can change input values, and generate results as graphs and tables. You just can't edit formulas or add variables to models with more than 100 objects.

If you're interested in trying out Analytica's optmization functions, sign up for a free 30-day trial of Analytica Optimizer.
