SageMath – open source Python mathematics software system

SageMath is an open source computer algebra system written in Python and Cython and integrates an included distribution of specialized mathematics software into a common experience. It tries to cover many aspects of mathematics, including algebra, combinatorics, numerical mathematics and calculus.

The objective of Sage is to offer a real open source alternative to proprietary solutions like Mathematics and Matlab.

SageMath combines various software packages and seamlessly integrates their functionality into a common experience. It is well suited for education, studying and research.

The interface is a notebook in a web-browser or the command-line. Using the notebook, SageMath connects either locally to your own Sage installation or to a Sage server on the network. Inside the SageMath notebook you can create embedded graphics, beautifully typeset mathematical expressions, add and delete input, and share your work across the network.

Features include:

  • Provides a notebook document interface. It’s compatible with Firefox, Opera, Konqueror, Google Chrome and Safari. Notebooks can be accessed locally or remotely and the connection can be secured with HTTPS.
  • Provides a text-based command line interface using IPython.
  • Includes MoinMoin as a Wiki system for knowledge management.
  • Embed Sage inside LaTeX documents.
  • Use sliders as input for calculations.
  • Provides support for distributed computing.
  • Support for parallel processing using multi-core processors, multiple processors, or distributed computing.
  • Provides interfaces to some third-party software like Mathematica, Magma, and Maple, which allows users to combine software and compare output and performance. It is therefore also a “front-end” to other mathematical tools similar to GNU TeXmacs.
  • Cross-platform support – runs under Linux, macOS, Windows, Solaris, Android, and iOS.
