Sagemath 4.2

sage_logo_new Sagemath 4.2 per Mandriva Linux 2010.0 MIB SPECIAL PROJECT
Sage is free, open-source math software that supports research and teaching in algebra, geometry, number theory, cryptography, numerical computation, and related areas.





Both the Sage development model and the technology in Sage itself are distinguished by an extremely strong emphasis on openness, community, cooperation, and collaboration: we are building the car, not reinventing the wheel. The overall goal of Sage is to create a viable, free, open-source alternative to Maple, Mathematica, Magma, and MATLAB.

Goals of Sage

Useful: Sage’s intended audience is mathematics students (from high school to graduate school), teachers, and research mathematicians. The aim is to provide software that can be used to explore and experiment with mathematical constructions in algebra, geometry, number theory, calculus, numerical computation, etc. Sage helps make it easier to interactively experiment with mathematical objects.

With Sage you can work with Galois' Theory, Tropical Geometry, E.D.O., Linear Algebra, Rings, Abelian Groups, Modular Forms, Integrals, Derivatives, Graph' Theory, and more and more.

For using it open a terminal and type sage, that's all. You can work in sage like a calculator, too. It is based in Python and you can work like in Python terminal mode, too.
