Release Notes: This release contains new parts for free non-commutative Gröbner base computation and polynomial reduction. It consists of a new interface WordGroebnerBase and new classes WordGroebnerBaseAbstract and WordGroebnerBaseSeq. The jython and jruby access to non-commutative polynomials is provided with the classes WordPolyRing and WordIdeal. Additionally, there is an improved way to select (commutative) Gröbner base algorithm implementations with the class GBAlgorithmBuilder; for example, a fraction free algorithm with optimization of the variable order.
XML parser class is a PHP class that parses arbitrary XML input and builds an array with the structure of all tag and data elements. Optionally it can keep track of the positions of each element to locate elements that may be contextually in error. Supports a parsed file cache to minimize the overhead of parsing the same file repeatedly. Optimized parsing of simplified XML (SML) formats ignoring the tag attributes.
Release Notes: This release fixes the assignment of parse errors when extracting element data.
FísicaLab is an educational application to solve physics problems. The problems are set up by adding elements from the palette to a chalkboard and entering the data for each element. The elements are objects such as blocks, pulleys, motors, and forces. It can use the SI and English unit systems, scientific notation, and many conversion factors. The types of problems that can be solved are kinematics of particles (including circular motion), static analysis of particles and rigid bodies in 2D, dynamic analysis of particles in 2D (excluding the dynamics of circular motion), heat, calorimetry, ideal gas, and expansion. The static and dynamic problems are entered by constructing the free body diagrams of the objects.
Release Notes: The conversion factors are now available from a contextual menu. Basic mathematical operations can be done at table entries. There are some useful functions like: cos(), sin(), and hypot(). The module Static of Rigid Bodies has been extended. The module Circular Dynamics of particles has been added.
