Cantor is a GUI for fancy computer algebra systems (CAS).
It is part of the KDE Education Project. |

## Description

**Cantor** is an application that lets you use your favorite mathematical applications from within a nice KDE-integrated Worksheet Interface. It offers assistant dialogs for common tasks and allows you to share your worksheets with others.

Eleven backends are currently available: Julia, Lua, Maxima, GNU Octave, python2, python, Qalculate, Sage, Scilab, R and KAlgebra.

## Features

- Nice Worksheet view for evaluating expressions
- View of plotting results inside the worksheet or in a separate window
- Easy plugin based structure to add different backends
**GetHotNewStuff**integration to upload/download example worksheets- Typesetting of mathematical formulas using
**LaTeX** - Backend aware syntax highlighting
- Plugin based assistant dialogs for common tasks (like integrating a function or entering a matrix)
