Wavelab, based on the Matlab quantitative computing environment, is the first effort to provide a toolbox specifically designed to reproduce results in a series of computational science papers. The toolboxes in Wavelab framework include Atomizer for sparse representation of signals, Beamlab for multiscale geometric analysis, and Sparselab for multiscale analysis of manifold valued data. Various researchers have compared their own novel algorithms with the algorithms first published in the Sparselab package, which allows them to reproduce papers in Sparselab. The Symmlab package, which includes core algorithms and generates synthetic data, disseminates new problems and illustrates new data types. The arguments raised by researchers against reproducibility include reproducibility undermining the creation of intellectual capita; and reproducibility destroying time-honored motivations for collaboration.
