Log Message:
Update to 0.7.4.1:

0.7.4.1

These are the release notes for SymPy 0.7.4.1, which was released
on December 15, 2013.

This version of SymPy has been tested on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3,
and PyPy.

This was a small bugfix release to fix an import issue on Windows
(https://github.com/sympy/sympy/issues/2681).

0.7.4

These are the release notes for SymPy 0.7.4, which was released on
December 9, 2013.

This version of SymPy has been tested on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3,
and PyPy.
Major changes
Python 3

SymPy now uses a single code-base for Python 2 and Python 3.
Geometric Algebra

The internal representation of a multivector has been changes to
more fully use the inherent capabilities of SymPy. A multivector
is now represented by a linear combination of real commutative
SymPy expressions and a collection of non-commutative SymPy symbols.
Each non-commutative symbol represents a base in the geometric
algebra of an N-dimensional vector space. The total number of
non-commutative bases is 2**N - 1 (N of which are a basis for the
vector space) which when including scalars give a dimension for
the geometric algebra of 2**N. The different products of geometric
algebra are implemented as functions that take pairs of bases
symbols and return a multivector for each pair of bases.

The LaTeX printing module for multivectors has been rewritten to
simply extend the existing sympy LaTeX printing module and the
sympy LaTeX module is now used to print the bases coefficients in
the multivector representation instead of writing an entire LaTeX
printing module from scratch.

The main change in the geometric algebra module from the viewpoint
of the user is the inteface for the gradient operator and the
implementation of vector manifolds:

The gradient operator is now implemented as a special vector (the
user can name it grad if they wish) so the if F is a multivector
where **, ^, |, <, and > are the geometric product, outer product,
inner product, left contraction, and right contraction, respectively.

The vector manifold is defined as a parametric vector field in an
embedding vector space. For example a surface in a 3-dimensional
space would be a vector field as a function of two parameters. Then
multivector fields can be defined on the manifold. The operations
available to be performed on these fields are directional derivative,
gradient, and projection. The weak point of the current manifold
representation is that all fields on the manifold are represented
in terms of the bases of the embedding vector space.
Classical Cryptography

Implements:

Affine ciphers
Vigenere ciphers
Bifid ciphers
Hill ciphers
RSA and "kid RSA"
linear feedback shift registers.

Common Subexpression Elimination (CSE)

Major changes have been done in cse internals resulting in a big
speedup for larger expressions. Some changes reflect on the user
side:

Adds and Muls are now recursively matched ([w*x, w*x*y, w*x*y*z]
Ç¹ow turns into [(x0, w*x), (x1, x0*y)], [x0, x1, x1*z])
CSE is now not performed on the non-commutative parts of
multiplications (it avoids some bugs).
Pre and post optimizations are not performed by default anymore.
The optimizations parameter still exists and optimizations='basic'
can be used to apply previous default optimizations. These
optimizations could really slow down cse on larger expressions
and are no guarantee of better results.
An order parameter has been introduced to control whether Adds
and Muls terms are ordered independently of hashing implementation.
The default order='canonical' will independently order the
terms. order='none' will not do any ordering (hashes order is
used) and will represent a major performance improvement for
really huge expressions.
In general, the output of cse will be slightly different from
the previous implementation.

Diophantine Equation Module

This is a new addition to SymPy as a result of a GSoC project. With
the current release, following five types of equations are supported.

Linear Diophantine equation, a_{1}x_{1} + a_{2}x_{2} + . . .
+ a_{n}x_{n} = b
General binary quadratic equation, ax^2 + bxy + cy^2 + dx + ey
+ f = 0
Homogeneous ternary quadratic equation, ax^2 + by^2 + cz^2 +
dxy + eyz + fzx = 0
Extended Pythagorean equation, a_{1}x_{1}^2 + a_{2}x_{2}^2 +
. . . + a_{n}x_{n}^2 = a_{n+1}x_{n+1}^2
General sum of squares, x_{1}^2 + x_{2}^2 + . . . + x_{n}^2 =
k

Unification of Sum, Product, and Integral classes

A new superclass has been introduced to unify the treatments of
indexed expressions, such as Sum, Product, and Integral. This
enforced common behavior accross the objects, and provides more
robust support for a number of operations. For example, Sums and
Integrals can now be factored or expanded. S.subs() can be used to
substitute for expressions inside a Sum/Integral/Product that are
independent of the index variables, including unknown functions,
for instance, Integral(f(x), (x, 1, 3)).subs(f(x), x**2), while
Sum.change_index() or Integral.transform are now used for other
changes of summation or integration variables. Support for finite
and infinite sequence products has also been restored.

In addition there were a number of fixes to the evaluation of nested
sums and sums involving Kronecker delta functions, see issue 3924
and issue 3987.
Series

The Order object used to represent the growth of a function in
series expansions as a variable tend to zero can now also
represent growth as a variable tend to infinity. This also
fixed a number of issues with limits. See issue 234 and issue
2670.

Division by Order is disallowed, see issue 1756.

Addition of Order object is now commutative, see issue 1180.

Physics

Initial work on gamma matrices, depending on the tensor module.

Logic

New objects true and false which are Basic versions of the
Python builtins True and False.

Other

Arbitrary comparisons between expressions (like x < y) no longer
have a boolean truth value. This means code like if x < y or
sorted(exprs) will raise TypeError if x < y is symbolic. A
typical fix of the former is if (x < y) is True (assuming the
if block should be skipped if x < y is symbolic), and of the
latter is sorted(exprs, key=default_sort_key), which will order
the expressions in an arbitrary, but consistent way, even across
platforms and Python versions. See issue 2832.

Arbitrary comparisons between complex numbers (for example, I
> 1) now raise TypeError as well (see PR #2510).

minpoly now works with algebraic functions, like minpoly(sqrt(x)
+ sqrt(x + 1), y).

exp can now act on any matrix, even those which are not
diagonalizable. It is also more comfortable to call it, exp(m)
instead of just m.exp(), as was required previously.

sympify now has an option evaluate=False that will not
automatically simplify expressions like x+x.

Deep processing of cancel and simplify functions. simplify is
now recursive through the expression tree. See e.g. issue 3923.

Improved the modularity of the codebase for potential subclasses,
see issue 3652.

The SymPy cheatsheet was cleaned up.

Backwards compatibility breaks and deprecations

Removed deprecated Real class and is_Real property of Basic,
see issue 1721.
Removed deprecated 'each_char' option for symbols(), see issue
1919.
The viewer="StringIO" option to preview() has been deprecated.
Use viewer="BytesIO" instead. See issue 3984.
TransformationSet has been renamed to ImageSet. Added public
facing imageset function.

0.7.3

These are the release notes for SymPy 0.7.3, which was released on
https://github.com/sympy/sympy/releases/tag/sympy-0.7.3.

This version of SymPy has been tested on Python 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.2,
3.3, and PyPy.
Major changes
Integration

This release includes Risch integration algorithm from Aaron Meurer's
2010 Google Summer of Code project. This makes integrate much more
powerful and much faster for the supported functions. The algorithm
is called automatically from integrate(). For now, only transcendental
elementary functions containing exp or log are supported. To access
the algorithm directly, use integrate(expr, x, risch=True). The
algorithm has the ability to prove that integrals are nonelementary.
To determine if a function is nonelementary, integrate using
risch=True. If the resulting Integral class is an instance of
NonElementaryIntegral, then it is not elementary (otherwise, that
part of the algorithm has just not been implemented yet).

Here is an example integral that could not be computed before:

>>> f = x*(x + 1)*(2*x*(x - (2*x**3 + 2*x**2 + x + 1)*log(x +
1))*exp(3*x**2) + (x**2*exp(2*x**2) - log(x + 1)**2)**2)/((x +
1)*log(x + 1)**2 - (x**3 + x**2)*exp(2*x**2))**2
>>> integrate(f, x)
x + x*exp(x**2)*log(x + 1)/(x**2*exp(2*x**2) - log(x + 1)**2) -
log(x + 1) - log(exp(x**2) - log(x + 1)/x)/2 + log(exp(x**2) +
log(x + 1)/x)/2

ODE

Built basic infrastructure of the PDE module (PR #1970)

Theano Interaction

SymPy expressions can now be translated into Theano expressions
for numeric evaluation. This includes most standard scalar operations
(e.g. sin, exp, gamma, but not beta or MeijerG) and matrices. This
system generally outperforms lambdify and autowrap but does require
Theano to be installed.
Matrix Expressions
Assumptions

Matrix expressions now support inference using the new assumptions
system. New predicates include invertible, symmetric, positive_definite,
orthogonal, ....
New Operators

MatrixSlice, DFT. Also, preliminary support exists for factorizations
like SVD and LU.
Context manager for New Assumptions

Added the with assuming(*facts) context manager for new assumptions.
See blogpost
Backwards compatibility breaks and deprecations

This is the last version of SymPy to support Python 2.5.

sympy.interactive.ipythonprinting is deprecated. Use from sympy
import init_printing; init_printing() instead. See issue 3914.

The viewer='file' option to preview without a file name is
deprecated. Use filename='name' in addition to viewer='file'.
See issue 3919.

The deprecated syntax Symbol('x', dummy=True), which had been
deprecated since 0.7.0, has been removed. Use Dummy('x') or
symbols('x', cls=Dummy) instead. See issue 3378.

The deprecated Expr methods as_coeff_terms and as_coeff_factors,
which have been deprecated in favor of as_coeff_mul and
were removed. The methods had been deprecated since SymPy 0.7.0.
See issue 3377.

The spherical harmonics have been completely rewritten. See PR
#1510.

Minor changes
Solvers

Added enhancements and improved the methods of solving exact
differential equation ((PR #1955)) and ((PR #1823))

Support for first order linear general PDE's with constant
coefficients ((PR #2109))
Return all found independent solutions for underdetermined
systems.
Handle recursive problems for which y(0) = 0.
Handle matrix equations.

Integration

integrate will split out integrals into Piecewise expressions
when conditions must hold for the answer to be true. For example,
integrate(x**n, x) now gives Piecewise((log(x), Eq(n, -1),
(x**(n + 1)/(n + 1), True)) (previously it just gave x**(n +
1)/(n + 1))
