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:

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.

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.
