Math Engine

6 posts in this topic

I'm working on a quite complex project in AutoIt and well, I need some kind of "math engine" - capable of doing at least basic math step-by-step (not just like eval functions), and if possible higher maths (fractions, working with polynomiums, solving equation *up to* the 2nd degree, and maybe integrals, derivatives and limits). I know this kind of things do exist in other languages, just wondering if there's a (free) implementation of these things in autoit. Also, link.

First things first.

Now I wouldn't recommend embarking in such project by relying on an AutoIt-based CAS library, should one ever exist.

OTOH you can still benefit of AutoIt rapid development for the front-end, data management and UI, and invoke a full-blown proven library, i.e. using DllCalls.


This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
Another excellent RegExp tutorial. Don't forget downloading your copy of up-to-date pcretest.exe and pcregrep.exe here
RegExp tutorial: enough to get started
PCRE v8.33 regexp documentation latest available release and currently implemented in AutoIt beta.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.
An excellent eBook covering almost every aspect of SQLite3: a must-read for anyone doing serious work.
SQL tutorial (covers "generic" SQL, but most of it applies to SQLite as well)
A work-in-progress SQLite3 tutorial. Don't miss other LxyzTHW pages!
SQLite official website with full documentation (may be newer than the SQLite library that comes standard with AutoIt)

I would advise to use matlab if its just some basic application that isn't really needed in production. It has all required math functions you describe.

Matlab and its clones won't do symbolic computations required by "working with polynoms, solving equations, integrals, derivatives, limits".

Matlab is particularly well suited to problems involving mainly vectors and matrices.

EDIT:

Depending on your needs, you way get away with Wolfram Alpha: like that for instance.

I am aware of W|A, but I needed its math features into a program (and not paying to get Mathematica).

Several CAS libraries can be compiled into a DLL which you can invoke from, say, any AutoIt program. Alternatively you can also interact with a product offering a complete front-end. Wolfram Alpha is just another way to submit maths problems and obtain solution within few seconds, most of the time.
