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 mathicsAUR, available in AUR.

Using Mathics

Mathics can be used through a CLI or a web interface

Mathics CLI

Just execute from a command line:

and then open localhost:8000 with your web browser.
