Computational Tools

As part of the ongoing work to determine the correct mathematical framework for describing physical phenomena, we have been developing several software based tools to aid in the computation and visualisation of results. This work is being lead by Innes Anderson-Morrison and currently comprises of the two software libraries listed below and supporting programs / scripts built using them.

The current stable versions of the libraries can be found at the Quicycle GitHub page here, with the latest changes being available at the links given below.

  • arpy – a python library and command line tool for interactive computation. arpy was originally developed to aid in comparing different metrics and configurations of the elements within the AR algebra which makes it particularly powerful for comparing results of calculations under different systems.
  • arthroprod – originally a rewrite of the python code from arpy to improve performance, this is now the main project being worked on for active research into the AR algebra and verification of results. Given the research based nature of the project and its use of as-yet unpublished results to vastly simplify calculation, the main project is currently private on GitHub (though a previous version is available here). If you would like to view or contribute to the project please get in touch.
