Algebrite is a Javascript library for symbolic mathematics (technically, CoffeeScript) designed to be comprehensible and easily extensible.

var Algebrite = require('algebrite')

Algebrite.run('x + x') // => "2 x"

Algebrite.factor('10!').toString() // => "2^8 3^4 5^2 7"

Algebrite.eval('integral(x^2)').toString() // => "1/3 x^3"

// composing...
Algebrite.integral(Algebrite.eval('x')).toString() // => "1/2 x^2"

# Features

Algebrite supports: arbitrary-precision arithmetic, complex quantities, simplification, expansion , substitution, symbolic and numeric roots, units of measurement, matrices, derivatives and gradients, tensors, integrals, multi-integrals, computing integrals and much more!

# Examples and manual

All the built-in methods in Algebrite are exposed through a javascript interface. Strings are automatically parsed as expressions, numbers are converted into the appropriate representation, and the internal cons objects are returned.

The cons objects have a toString method which converts it into a pretty-print notation.

# How to build

For node use:

1. make sure npm is installed
2. npm install
3. npm run build

To debug things, better use the debugger from Chrome, so build for the browser like so:

1. make sure npm is installed
2. make sure browserify is installed
3. npm install
4. npm run build-for-browser
5. open index.html

# How to test

For full tests:

npm test

For the subset of tests in run-micro-tests.coffee:

npm run microtest

# References

Algebrite starts as an adaptation of the EigenMath CAS by George Weigt. Also you might want to check another fork of EigenMath: SMIB by Philippe Billet.

Another CAS of similar nature is SymPy made in Python.

Three other Javascript CAS are

• javascript-cas by Anthony Foster supporting "differentiation, complex numbers, sums, vectors (dot products, cross products, gradient/curl etc)"
• Coffeequate by Matthew Alger supporting "quadratic and linear equations, simplification of most algebraic expressions, uncertainties propagation, substitutions, variables, constants, and symbolic constants".
• Algebra.js by Nicole White which among other things can build and solve equations via a "chainable" API.
