# Vector calculus

Hello,

Is there a vector calculus package/functionality in Sage that are similar to other 2M packages?

Thanks.

There is a fair amount of functionality, although I don't know if you'll find what specifically what you want. Here are some suggestions:

Evaluate

`vector?`

in a notebook cell or at a`sage:`

prompt to see the introductory documentation for vectors in Sage.See the reference manual for Matrices

Coordinate transformations were included in the Function Plotting section of the manual (although I find it a little confusing). See e.g. Spherical coordinate system.

The section of the reference manual on Plotting vector fields

Thanks for the answer. I am particularly interested in Laplacian operator, Spherical coordinate system, and plotting vector fields in various coordinate systems.

Sample question: How do I compute symbolic integrals like $\int{sin(x) tan(x)} dx$

How do I understand the result of symbolic integrals

why is symbolic comparison so slow?
