I have started a project
PySymbolic - "Doing Symbolics in Python"
PySymbolic is a collection of tools for doing elementary symbolic
calculations in Python. The project is in alpha stage.
Current features include basic simplifications:
*** removing redundant parenthesis: (a) -> a
*** applying factorization: -(a) -> -a, +a -> a, ~(a) -> ~a
*** collecting terms: n*a+b+m*a -> k*a+b (where k=n+m)
*** collecting powers: a**c*b/a**d -> a**(c-d)*b
*** cancellations: 0*a -> 0, a+0 -> 0,
a**0 -> 1, 1*a -> a, a**1 -> a
*** rational arithmetic: 3/4+2/6-1 -> 1/12
*** opening parenthesis: (a+b)*c -> a*c+b*c
*** expanding integer powers: (a+b)**n -> a**n+a**(n-1)*b+...
*** sorting terms in alphabethic order: a+c+b -> a+b+c
*** (more to come)
