We encourage everyone to participate in this wiki. To edit it, you need to create an account (top right corner). Just fill in your name and password and that's it (no email confirmation, or other annoying things). Feel free to play/test something in the Sandbox.
Note, there are a bunch of pages in this wiki that are not linked to from here. See them all here.

Unless stated otherwise, everything on this wiki is licensed under the same terms as SymPy, i.e. modified BSD license. This is so that we can take anything from here and add it to the SymPy tarball as a documentation. See License choice for the motivation and discussion behind that choice.
If you have some interesting material, that you don't want to (or cannot) make BSD licensed, please put there a notice, that it has some other license.
