SMath Studio - SMath
Created by SMath LLC in the scope of SMath project. Published by smath.

SMath Studio

  • SMath Studio box
  • Calculation of Gravitation Acceleration example
  • Example of animation on the Worksheet
  • Extensions Manager tool
  • Opened math Reference Book
  • SMath Viewer output to Autocad example
  • SMath Studio on iOS
  • SMath Studio on iPad

Tiny, but powerful mathematical program with WYSIWYG editor and complete units of measurements support.

It provides numerous computing features and rich user interface translated into about 40 different languages. Application also contains integrated mathematical reference book.

Free for personal usage! Plans for Organizations are available!

Application can be easily extended based on your needs. Built-in Extensions Manager tool allows to get access to hundreds official and third-party resources of the following types: usage examples, plug-ins, SMath Viewer based applications, snippets, interface translations, interactive books, handbooks and tutorials.

  • Imagine combining Microsoft Word with the ability to compute every time you press equals. Best application for your engineering documentation needs!

    by Michael James Quidilla

  • I use this program on my everyday civil engineering calculations, and I highly recommend it!

    by GiE

  • SMath Studio is a great alternative to MathCAD. It is small and portable. I use it primarily for structural engineering calculations and for documenting my work. Many thanks to Andrey and the other developers for this great tool.

    by Eric Durham

  • Congratulations!! This software is amazing!! An almost complete substitution for Mathcad!!

    by Hervandil Sant'Anna

  • Great software. Excellent tool for engineering students to make study of complicated problems a breeze. Time need to familiarize is very less as there are good guides prepared for easy use.

SMath Studio in publications

SMath Studio plug-ins (all plug-ins...)

The functionality of the program can be expanded through the installation of plug-ins created by third-party developers and companies, as well as those prepared by the SMath LLC team. Most plug-ins are open source and can be modified if necessary.

I had hoped for round-half-to-even instead of away from zero.
  • This is IEEE 754 default rounding mode
  • It is most common in engineering
  • It is the way I teach my students


What is the motivation of the design decision of rounding half away from zero?

The step-in feature without breakpoints is great.
This is a major step towards a very convenient context-inspector.

IMHO these features could be useful:
- Context display at cursor location (what you would see if there was a breakpoint there), perhaps some execute-to-cursor button
- Reliable call-outs for dynamic formatted display of the context items (currently, sometimes the callout doesn't show up)

Martin, I'm recieving many e-mails regarding "rounding is unpredictable".
Personally I do not see significant benefits from round-half-to-even (because SMath Studio never knows source of the data it works with), but this, of course, has no sence.

The benefit is that if summing up large numbers of rounded numbers then you don't get a systematic bias.
In round away from zero this is true only if the distribution of the numbers is symmetric to zero.

Maxima implements round to even.

As the type of rounding seems to be a matter of taste I would recommend to make this a settings item, at least for result formatting. For explicit rounding one could have separate functions or an optional argument.

====================================
Well, there is "rounding & rounding" ... most interesting:
http://mathworld.wolfram.com/RoundoffError.html

Nothing is absolutely true in this world.
1. NO math computations are true.
2. NO measurements are true.
3. NOT all minutes have 60 seconds ... What !

Yes "What" ... once in a while there is a Savant Lab [in Paris]
that adjusts the universal time ± 1 second.
I can survive the conventional ½ way up/down.

Cheers ... Jean.
