Get the most out of SymPy’s functionalities with Packt’s new eBook.

May 2013 | Web Development

Instant SymPy Starter is a new book from Packt that will show readers how to set up the best computing environment with the IPython Notebook, SymPy, and Python libraries. Readers will learn how to streamline computations with computer algebra and compile symbolic expressions into efficient numerical functions.

About the author:
Ronan Lamy has been a core developer of SymPy since 2009 and is an open source developer and Python consultant. He spent four years analyzing data in a proprietary computer algebra system to obtain his Ph.D. in physics, where he learnt the power of symbolic computation.

Instant SymPy Starter is a practical guide to setting up development environments to integrate SymPy into workflows for both symbolic and numerical computations inside IPython Notebook.

With this book, readers will discover how to translate mathematical expressions into SymPy objects, compute exact derivatives and Taylor expansions automatically, and how to solve systems of equations. All the code used in the examples is available in downloadable IPython notebooks, so readers can work through them on their own system as they go through the book.

Python developers with a good grounding in Python, as well as some familiarity with its scientific ecosystem, will find this book useful. For more information please visit the book page at http://www.packtpub.com/sympy-python-starter/book
