I’ve developed a Julia package to manipulate symbolic linear expressions with both scalar and matrix coefficients: https://github.com/cdsousa/LinearExpressions.jl I created it mainly to manipulate large linear matrix inequalities (LMI) for SDP optimization, and I’ve been using it whenever PyLMI-SDP is too slow for the job.


Over the past months I’ve been studying  how to improve performance of the Common Subexpression Elimination (CSE) routine of SymPy, so it can be used in SymPyBotics with acceptable computing times. This resulted in pull request #2355, which had already been merged into SymPy master branch (for release in version 0.7.4). Here is an example comparing both new and previous CSE implementations […]

SymPyBotics

Today I’ve released SymPyBotics software in GitHub. This is a python toolbox to generate and manipulate robot dynamic equations. It depends on the great SymPy library and on SymCode, another library I’m developing.


I’m starting (1 year already done) my PhD so I have to make a thesis proposal (they call it thesis project) for the university. As a fan of typography, I produce almost all my documents using LaTeX type system. And when they are long I put the source code into git versioning. This time, and […]
