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
