Project Description
Algebraic calculation system implemented purely in C#.

I was inspired by the Ginac project to make this library

I've tested the library based on Maxima project (many thanks for the people behind this project]


I am please to say that I've made a silverlight console

so beside using the console in the download, you can test quickly using the silverlight version.
enjoy this fine release :)

How to do calculation in your .net application

  • Reference the dll into your project.

First Method:

Use Parse Method
var p = SymbolicVariable.Parse("x+x*y+(a-b)^3");

Second Method

  • Instantiate a symbolic variable object with the symbol name.
  • do calculations like the normal variables.
  • result is obtained textual when you call ToString()
SymbolicVariable x = new SymbolicVariable("x");
SymbolicVariable y = new SymbolicVariable("y");
SymbolicVariable z = new SymbolicVariable("z");
SymbolicVariable t = new SymbolicVariable("t");            
SymbolicVariable Zero = new SymbolicVariable("0");
SymbolicVariable One = new SymbolicVariable("1");
SymbolicVariable Two = new SymbolicVariable("2");
SymbolicVariable Three = new SymbolicVariable("3");
SymbolicVariable Four = new SymbolicVariable("4");
var a = x+y;
var b = x-y;
var ab = a*b;

What about derivatives?

Derivation has been implemented into the library.
Below is a code borrowed from the unit test project.

var a = x.Power(2).Differentiate("x");
Assert.AreEqual("2*x", a.ToString());

var b = (x.Power(2) + x.Power(3) + x.Power(4)).Differentiate("x");
Assert.AreEqual("2*x+3*x^2+4*x^3", b.ToString());

var c = (x.Power(2) * y.Power(3) * z.Power(4));
var dc_z = c.Differentiate("z");
Assert.AreEqual("4*x^2*y^3*z^3", dc_z.ToString());

var d = (x.Power(3) * y.Power(-40))+(y.Power(3)*z.Power(-1));
var dd_y = d.Differentiate("y");
Assert.AreEqual("-40*x^3/y^41+3*y^2/z", dd_y.ToString());

var e = x.RaiseToSymbolicPower(2*y);
var de_x = e.Differentiate("x");
Assert.AreEqual("2*x^(2*y-1)*y", de_x.ToString());

Function derivation

I've added function derivation in this release in the known functions
which means you can now derive sin and cos functions
but I think I missed other functions (please test and tell me :) )

Quantity System

If you liked this library, make sure you review its usage into Quantity System Calculator which implement symbolic and numerical calculations by blending them together with the aid of units.
