About SymPy

SymPy is a Python library for symbolic mathematics. It aims to become a full-featured computer algebra system (CAS) while keeping the code as simple as possible in order to be comprehensible and easily extensible. SymPy is written entirely in Python and does not require any external libraries.

Major changes in this release:

  • robust and fast (still pure Python) multivariate factorization
  • sympy works with pickle protocol 2 (thus works in ipython parallel)
  • ./sympy test now uses our testing suite and it tests both regular tests and doctests
  • examples directory tidied up
  • more trigonometric simplifications
  • polynomial roots finding and factoring vastly improved
  • mpmath updated
  • many bugfixes (more than 200 patches since the last release)
