Mathics is a free CAS (Computer Algebra System) for symbolic mathematical computations that uses Python as its main language. It aims at achieving a Mathematica-compatible syntax and functions. It relies mostly on Sympy for most mathematical tasks and, optionally, Sage for more advanced stuff.

## Installation

Mathics can be installed with the package mathics^{AUR}, available in AUR.

## Using Mathics

Mathics can be used through a CLI or a web interface

### Mathics CLI

Just execute from a command line:

$ mathics

### Mathics web interface

Before you run mathics web interface you must execute in the command line the following (as the user who will execute mathics):

$ /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/mathics_initialize.py

Then execute from the command line:

$ mathicsserver
