Summary description: A computer algebra system for users of LuaLaTeX
Announcement text:

The package luacas allows for symbolic computation within LaTeX for users of LuaLaTeX. Features include: arbitrary-precision integer and rational arithmetic, factoring of univariate polynomials over the rationals and finite fields, number theoretic algorithms, symbolic differentiation and integration, and more. The target audience for this package are mathematics students, instructors, and professionals who would like some ability to perform basic symbolic computations within LaTeX without the need for laborious and technical setup.

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/luacas The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/luatex/latex/luacas/
