README

This is the SympyTeX package. This package allows you to embed symbolic calculations and their results into LaTeX documents. SympyTex uses sympy, the symbolic python engine (http://www.sympy.org), to manipulate symbolic expressions. Using SympyTeX, sympy code can be embedded into your document, either hidden from view, or as part of the document, and sympy expressions can be rendered into LaTeX expressions and included in your document output. SympyTex was written by Tim Molteno (tim@physics.otago.ac.nz) ==================================================================== ##Using SympyTex To use SympyTeX, you need the files, sympytex.sty and sympytex.py. See below for instructions. You also need to have installed the Sympy (Symbolic Python) package aptitude install python-sympy Create a LaTeX document that uses the sympytex package. \usepackage{sympytex} ... \begin{sympyblock} x = sympy.Symbol('x') h = sympy.integrate(1+x**4,x) \end{sympyblock} The integral of $1+x^4$ is also \sympy{sympy.integrate(1+x**4,x)}. or you can use a sympy variable, $h = \sympy{h}$ Now run: latex mydoc.tex python mydoc.sympy latex mydoc.tex See the include example.tex for more details. ==================================================================== ##Building the Package ###The easy way Use the provided Makefile make make test This will build the SympyTeX package, and also create a sample document. ###The hard way To build the SympyTeX package you will need to install some extra LaTeX packages (makecmds.sty) aptitude install texlive-latex-extra Then do: 0. Run `latex sympytexpackage.ins' If a PDF file of the documentation wasn't included with this distribution of SympyTeX, you will need to build the documentation yourself. To do that: 1. Run `latex sympytexpackage.dtx' 2. Run `python sympytexpackage.sympy' 3. Run the indexing commands that the .ins file told you about. 4. Run `latex sympytexpackage.dtx' again. You can skip step 3 if you don't care about the index. You will need the pgf and tikz packages installed to typeset the figures. The file example.tex has, as you likely guessed, a bunch of examples showing you how this package works. ##Building a debian package This is work-in-progress. But you should be able to build one using make deb ##Credits SympyTeX builds on a lot of work by others; in particular the work of Dan Drake <ddrake@member.ams.org> who created the sagetex package on which sympytex is based.

## sympytex – Include symbolic computation (using sympy) in documents

The bundle supports inclusion of symbolic-python (sympy) expressions, as well as graphical output from the sympy plotting module (or from matplotlib).
