Symbolic Math with Python using SymPy

Episode #364, published Sat, May 7, 2022, recorded Fri, May 6, 2022

We're all familiar with the data science tools like numpy, pandas, and others. These are numerical tools working with floating point numbers, often to represent real-world systems. But what if you exactly specify the equations, symbolically like many of us did back in Calculus and Differential Equations courses? With SymPy, you can do exactly that. Create equations, integrate, differentiate, and solve them. Then you can convert those solutions into Python (or even C++ and Fortran code). We're here with two of the core maintainer: Ondřej Čertík and Aaron Meurer to learn all about SymPy.
