LibPoly

LibPoly is a C library for manipulating polynomials. The target applications are symbolic reasoning engines, such as SMT solvers, that need to reason about polynomial constraints. It is research software under development, so the features and the API might change rapidly.

Prerequisites

To compile on an Ubuntu machine you can install the prerequisites with

sudo apt-get install gcc cmake make libgmp-dev python2.7-dev python-sympy

To compile on a Mac you can install the prerequisites with

brew install gmp cmake python
sudo easy_install pip
pip install sympy

Python (and sympy) is not necessary and is used for testing the library through the Python bindings (these are also useful for playing with the library).

Compiling

To compile and install perform

cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=$type -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$prefix
make
make install

The $type above is should be either "Debug" or "Release", and $prefix is the target directory where the library will be installed. The prefix can be omitted, in which case the library will be installed in the default system location (such as /usr/local).

If the tests are enabled, you can do a sanity check of the library by doing a make check.

The most up-to-date build instructions can be seen by looking at our Travis build script .travis.yml.

Installing Prebuilt Binaries

Currently you can install the libpoly library (without python support) either using Homebrew or Aptitude.

Homebrew

Installing on Darwin using homebrew can be achieved via:

brew install SRI-CSL/sri-csl/libpoly

Aptitude

To install libpoly on Ubuntu or Debian, do the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sri-csl/formal-methods
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libpoly-dev
