Math::Algebra::Symbols
Symbolic Algebra using Perl.
Copyright Philip R Brenan, 2004
This package supplies a set of functions and operators to manipulate
Perl expressions algebraically:
use symbols hyper=>1;
($n, $x, $y) = symbols(qw(n x y));
$a = sin($x)**2 + cos($x)**2;
$b = (sin($n*$x)+cos($n*$x))->d->d->d->d/(sin($n*$x)+cos($n*$x));
$c = tanh($x+$y)==(tanh($x)+tanh($y))/(1+tanh($x)*tanh($y));
print "$a\n$b\n$c\n";
# 1
# $n**4
# 1

This is alpha code. It is written in pure Perl. It uses the standard
Perl install mechanism or the ActiveState PPM Installer.
For a standard Perl install: download Math-Algebra-Symbols-1.05.tar.gz,
from CPAN: http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/dist/Math-Algebra-Symbols or from
SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/algeops/, untar and:
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
If you are on Windows, use nmake, available at:

.exe
For an ActiveState PPM Install: download
Math-Algebra-Symbols-XXX-PPD.tar.gz, to a local file, untar and:
ppm3.bat
repository add local file:://c:/downloads
search algebra
install
Use the directory into which you untarred in place of
file://c:/downloads
I believe that we should try to capture all known Mathematics
symbolically in Perl. Indeed, can you say that you know any Mathematics
at all if you cannot explain it in Perl?
Help with this project would be appreciated.
