# Directory `graphics/pstricks/contrib/pst-math`

pst-math: PostScript extension for mathematical functions: Save the files pst-math.sty|pro|tex in a directory, which is part of your local TeX tree. The pro file should go into $TEXMF/dvips/pstricks/ Then do not forget to run texhash to update this tree. For more information see the documentation of your LATEX distribution on installing packages into your local TeX system or read the TeX Frequently Asked Questions: (http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=instpackages). pst-math needs pst-plot (pstricks-add) and pstricks, which should be part of your local TeX installation, otherwise get it from a CTAN server, f.ex. ftp://ftp.ctan.org PSTricks is PostScript Tricks, the documentation cannot be run with pdftex, use the sequence latex->dvips->ps2pdf. %% $Id: README 56 2008-11-14 15:55:45Z herbert $

## pst-math – Enhancement of PostScript math operators to use with PSTricks

PostScript lacks a lot of basic operators such as tan, acos, asin, cosh, sinh, tanh, acosh, asinh, atanh, exp (with e base). Also (oddly) cos and sin use arguments in degrees.

Pst-math provides all those operators in a header file
`pst-math.pro` with wrappers `pst-math.sty`
and `pst-math.tex`.

In addition, sinc, gauss, gammaln and bessel are implemented
(only partially for the latter). The package is designed
essentially to work with pst-plot
but can be used in whatever PS code (such as PSTricks `SpecialCoor
"!"`, which is useful for placing labels).

The package also provides a routine SIMPSON for numerical integration and a solver of linear equation systems.
