Annoucement : smib-0.32 release
Posted: May 21, 2013 3:04 PM

smib is probably one of the smallest and simpliest computer algebra system in the world, but simple does not mean simplistic.
Using smib you can explore many branches of mathematics (e.g. number theory, algebra, calculus, numerical analysis, differential geometry, probalility and stochastic calculus) and also some physics (e.g. electromagnetism and quantum mechanic).
By simple you can understand easy to program (smib is a weakly typed language, with strong affinity to recursivity, programs are often short and powerful and maybe useful for teaching), and also easy to modify (source code is free, written in C language, and based on notions of stacks (like FORTH language), and lists (like LISP language)).

In this version :
- What can we do with euclidean division of polynomial :
* GCD
* polynomial equations
* modular inversion
* chinese remainder theorem
- Factorization, field of rational function.

V 0.31 :
- stochastic differential equation in higher dimension
- partial differential equation simulation using stochastic differential equation
- some improvement in documentation.

V 0.30 :
- spectral theory of undirected graphs :
* degree matrix
* laplacian matrix
* number of triangles
* number of connected components
- electromagnetic tensor and its properties
- odesolve : second order if a particular solution is known

V 0.29 :
- odesolve : ordinary differential equation solver (for first order - using dsolve-, and second order if coefficients are constant)
- dsolve uses antider instead of integral (calling a smib program in the smib kernel (in C language))
- Syracuze conjecture (dynamic allocation of arrays)
- Mertens function & Redheffer matrix

- Stratonovitch stochastic integral with brownian motion
- bug correction.

V 0.20 :

- bug fix: simplification of expressions, numerical evaluation.

V 0.17 :
- derivation of samples (integer & fractional)
- bug correction.

V 0.16 :
- Numerical application to special functions : Bessel functions, Hankel functions & Airy functions
- Some new example applied to differential geometry, probability & statistic.

V 0.15 :

V 0.14 :
- numerical analysis :
- fractionnal derivative
- new version of Euler scheme : ODE and coupled ODEs are treated by one program
- probability & statistic :
- gaussian random nuber
- new version of brownian motion
- bugs correction.

V 0.13 :
- numerical analysis :
- first order differential equation
- system of two first order differential equations
(using Euler scheme).

- expected value
- variance
- standard deviation

- improvement :
- simplify (if A=(x-1)*(x+1)/(x-1), simplify(A) returns : 1 + x)
- numint (if simpsonint = 1, Simpson scheme is used, else Gauss scheme is used), for probability, it is a good idea to set simsonint to 1.
