Description: SymFields: An Open Source Symbolic Fields Analysis Tool for General Curvilinear Coordinates in Python. An open source symbolic tool for vector fields analysis ’SymFields’ is developed in Python. The SymFields module is constructed upon Python symbolic module sympy, which could only conduct scaler field analysis. With SymFields module, you can conduct vector analysis for general curvilinear coordinates regardless whether it is orthogonal or not. In SymFields, the differential operators based on metric tensor are normalized to real physical values, which means your can use real physical value of the vector fields as inputs. This could greatly free the physicists from the tedious calculation under complicated coordinates.
