Lecture: SageMath and Cython
open-source scientific computing
SageMath is an open-source mathematical software. It combines the power of many software packages and libraries in a common Python-based interface. Under the hood, Cython serves as a significant ingredient for Sage and to interface with other libraries. This tool is used by other scientific Python libraries, too.
This talk outlines the history of the SageMath project, the motivation behind it and its goals. Besides giving a demonstration of its capabilities, it also gives an overview about technical aspects. Cython, an offspring of Sage, serves an important role to make it work and is also used by other scientific Python libraries.
