Welcome to the PyDy project page. PyDy, short for Python Dynamics, is a workflow that utlizes an array of scientific tools written in the Python programming language to study multibody dynamics. The core of this toolset is the SymPy mechanics package which generates symbolic equations of motion for complex multibody systems. The remaining tools used in the PyDy workflow are popular scientific Python packages such as NumPy, SciPy, IPython, and matplotlib which provide code for numerical analyses, simulation, and visualization. We are a group of engineers and scientists who for one reason or another prefer to work in Python. You can learn more by reading about our features and our history or examples.
Want to develop multibody dynamics software this summer in a large collaborative open source team?
If you are interested in applying check out the getting started page. Then send an email to the PyDy mailing list with a brief statement explaining your experience and why you think you are a good candidate for the position(s). The PyDy team will work directly with the top candidates to strengthen their GSoC applications.
