Software tools for creative circuit related operations

Which softwares would you recommend for playing creatively with circuits and circuit related topics, e.g. taking any mathematical formula and checking which circuit could also describe its behaviour. Or taking two circuits A and B and comparing both circuits,
1. quantitatively and
2. qualitatively,
giving as output a number between 0 and 1, 1 would be equal circuit in terms of behaviour, qualitatively, 0 would be NOTHING in common, e.g. no components match at all, no behaviour matches.
Or giving as input some "standard circuit format" and output would be a series of results in which you are interested, it could be just a single plot or 100 plots, or various plot combinations. Or again using some "standard circuit format" as input, then playing interactively on a gui with the parameters and checking the influence of those parameter variations. Also having various auto-parameter-change tools at hand, e.g. applying some lfo on a parameter with a given shape and frequency and phase. In short doing some real-time visual analysis of the circuit, at least of some parameters in the circuit.
