Symbolic Computation with Python using SymPy

Nishant Nikhil (~nishnik)




SymPy is a pure 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 library.

In Dev Sprint we will replicate the Development Workflow of the SymPy Project.


A basic knowledge of Python. No prior knowledge of SymPy or other Python libraries is required, although it is suggested that attendees be familiar with the IPython notebook & basics of git.
