Welcome to PolyMath!

PolyMath is a framework comprised of both a high-level language and an embedded Python language for compilation on heterogenous hardware.

This document will help you get up and running.

Step 0: Check prerequisites

The following dependencies must be met by your system:

  • python >= 3.7 (For PEP 560 support)

Step 1: Clone the PolyMath source code

$ git clone
$ cd polymath

Step 2: Create a Python virtualenv

Note: You may choose to skip this step if you are doing a system-wide install for multiple users. Please DO NOT skip this step if you are installing for personal use and/or you are a developer.

$ python -m venv general
$ source general/bin/activate
$ python -m pip install pip --upgrade

Step 3: Install PolyMath

If you already have a working installation of Python 3.7 or Python 3.8, the easiest way to install GeneSys is:

$ pip install -e .

Step 4: Run an example

You can look at the examples in the examples/ directory to see how the PolyMath language works.
