    SymPy Alternatives

    SymPy is described as 'Python library for symbolic computation. The stated goals of the library are to become a full-featured computer algebra system and to keep a simple code base to promote extensibility and comprehensibility' and is an app in the Education & Reference category. There are more than 25 alternatives to SymPy for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and Android. The best alternative is R (programming language), which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like SymPy are MATLAB (Paid), Mathematica (Paid), SageMath (Free, Open Source) and SciPy & Numpy (Free, Open Source).
