Unified wrapper for symbolic manipulation libraries in Python.

Project Description

Build status PyPI version Python version License airspeedvelocity coverage

sym provides a unified wrapper to some symbolic manipulation libraries in Python. It makes it easy for library authors to test their packages against several symbolic manipulation libraries.

Currently the following Python pacakges are available as “backends”:

The capabilities exposed here are those needed by

and include:

  • Differentiation
  • Numerical evaluation (including “lambdify” support)

see tests for examples. Note that pyodesys and pyneqsys also act as test suits for this package.

Documentation

Auto-generated API documentation for the latest stable release is found here: https://bjodah.github.io/sym/latest (and the development version for the current master branch is found here: http://hera.physchem.kth.se/~sym/branches/master/html).

Installation

Simplest way to install sym and its (optional) dependencies is to use pip:

$ pip install --user sym pytest
$ python -m pytest --pyargs sym

or the conda package manager:

$ conda install -c bjodah sym pytest
$ python -m pytest --pyargs sym

Source distribution is available here: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/sym

Example

Differentiation

>>> from sym import Backend
>>> be = Backend('pysym')  # just an example, use SymPy rather than pysym
>>> x, y = map(be.Symbol, 'x y'.split())
>>> expr = x*y**2 - be.tan(2*x)
>>> print(expr.diff(x))
((y**2) - ((1 + (tan((2*x))**2))*2))
