Projects / Mathomatic


Mathomatic is a portable, general-purpose computer algebra system (CAS) that can solve, differentiate, simplify, combine, and compare algebraic equations, perform standard, complex number, modular, and polynomial arithmetic, etc. It does some calculus and is very easy to compile/install, learn, and use. The symbolic math application with a simple command-line interface is designed to be a colorful algebra calculator that is reliable, responsive, and convenient to use. The symbolic math library is lightweight and easy to include in other software, due to being written entirely in C with no additional dependencies.

    Release Notes: This release adds many set command option changes and improvements, and they should all be backwards compatible. Integer type variables simplify better now. The read command now lets you set and get the contents of the current directory, for convenience. "Repeat approximate" is now similar to the calculate command. There are no plans to add the calculate command to the symbolic math library. Repeated warnings are suppressed.

      Release Notes: Many small but annoying bugs introduced in versions 16.0.0 and 16.0.1 have been fixed. The Symbolic Math Library now works almost identically to the application when it comes to numerical input. Regarding the official documentation, links were enabled in the PDF and the HTML version is not using a large font anymore, so it can be read with mobile devices. A general cleanup was performed.

        Release Notes: A new, simple syntax has been invented to apply identical operations to both sides of the current equation without interfering with current functionality, allowing a new tutorial script on quadratic formula derivation and proof. Many very minor bugs have been fixed, and automatic clearing of old numeric calculations now happens if memory is exhausted. Mathomatic now compiles easily with the Tiny C compiler (this has been tested).

          Release Notes: This major release features new functionality and bugfixes. Code, documentation, and user interface improvements and corrections have been made. Everything has been cleaned and tested.

            Release Notes: A massive cleanup has been done and many bugs were fixed. The solve verify command now quickly simplifies the solve result, so you don't have to, and verification success is therefore more likely. The official documentation has been perfected. Bugs were fixed in the code for the divide, limit, simplify, solve, and factor commands.
