The iMath extension for intelligent formulas enables numeric and symbolic calculations inside a Writer document.

Project Description

The iMath extension for intelligent formulas enables numeric and symbolic calculations inside a Writer document. The development of iMath was prompted by a problem which I often  encountered doing calculations in my profession as a mechanical  engineer. I would first begin writing out the problem on paper, putting  together the necessary equations, and then turn to a spreadsheet to do  the actual calculations. iMath is meant to integrate this process in a single Writer document.

See also the CompPad project which has a similar goal, and CmathOOoCAS which adds symbolic capabilities to calc. Both projects appear to be unmaintained, though.

How to use iMath is described in the iMath wiki and illustrated by examples in iMath-tour.odt,which you can find in the subdirectory matching your iMath version.

Windows users might need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package (search for "vcredist" on the Microsoft website).

Please see the wiki documentation for details on known working configurations of iMath, LibreOffice and Windows.

If your operating system can install .deb packages, have a look at my PPA. Note that if your system does not have libginac6 with a minimum version of 1.7.1, you must install from the PPA. In this case the required version of libginac6 will be installed as well. Up to version 2.1.4, iMath makes use of the EQC library. Linux users will have to install this as well.
