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.
- 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.
