CTAN update: numerica
Version 2.0.0 of numerica adds the commands \nmcMacros and \nmcConstants to handle user-defined macros and constants. The commands \nmcIterate, \nmcSolve and \nmcRecur, and \nmcTabulate, previously available by specifying package options have been separated into the stand-alone packages numerica-plus and numerica-tables.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/numerica The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/numerica/

numerica – Numerically evaluate mathematical expressions in LaTeX form
This package defines a command to wrap around a mathematical expression in its LaTeX form and, once values are assigned to variables, numerically evaluate it. The intent is to avoid the need to modify the LaTeX form of the expression being evaluated. For programs with a preview facility like LyX, or compile-as-you-go systems, interactive back-of-envelope calculations and numerical exploration are possible within the document being worked on.
