    Cantor is a GUI for fancy computer algebra systems (CAS).

    It is part of the KDE Education Project.

    Different backends in action.


    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.


    • 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)
