Mathemagix is a free computer algebra and
analysis system under development. It consists of the following
The Mathemagix language
Mathemagix provides a new high level
language, which is imperative, strongly typed, with polymorphim
and parametrized types. Mathemagix can be used
as an “extension language”, i.e. easy to
embed into other applications and to extend with existing libraries
written in other languages like C or C++. An interesting feature is
that this extension mechanism supports template types. In the future,
the Mathemagix language will provide more and
more powerful constructs for allowing the compiler to generate
extremely fast code (comparable to the speed of C or C++).
Currently, a -version of the compiler
mmc is available, which also provides an efficient
interpreter mmi. The old and rather slow Mmx-light
interpreter is also still supported.
The Mathemagix packages
Standard libraries are available for algebraic computation (large
numbers, polynomials, power series, matrices, etc. based
on FFT and other fast algorithms) for exact and approximate
computation. This should make Mathemagix
particularly suitable as a bridge between symbolic computation and
numerical analysis. The packages are written in C++. They can both be
used from the new compiler mmc, from the
old interpreter Mmx-light, or as
standalone C++ libraries.
A graphical interface
The program can be used within GNU TeXmacs as a
primary interface but also provides the user with a usual ascii
shell mode and a convenient advanced programmer interface.
A geometric modeler
The program is connected to the algebraic-geometric modeler axel as a tool for visualisation
and geometric computation.
