Does this thing need to be massively customisable, ala Excel, Matlab, or
could you evisage it as an app which allows one to set a bunch of
parameters, press a button, and numbers/graphs/other lovely stuff comes

If the latter, why not code it up as a web page in
server-side-scripting-language X? Maybe Java would do the job?
