Sage is a free, open source, self-contained distribution of mathematical software, including a large library that provides a unified interface to the components of this distribution. This library also builds on the components of Sage to implement novel algorithms covering a broad range of mathematical functionality from algebraic combinatorics to number theory and arithmetic geometry.
