Have you looked at Sage? It is basically Mathematica, but with Numpy,
etc, as a backend.



I will add a second recommendation to SAGE.  It's a big package, but I've never had trouble installing it.  It contains a *lot* of various libraries.  Many on symbolic math (like Mathematica), but a lot of Python modules, too, including ctypes and Cython which are good for speeding up python functions, and plotting modules.  It's a self contained package.  It has a whole Python interpreter in it.  Nothing else to install.  

-- Lou Pecora, my views are my own.
