mpoly: Multivariate Polynomials in R

The mpoly package is a general purpose collection of tools for symbolic computing with multivariate polynomials in R. In addition to basic arithmetic, mpoly can take derivatives of polyno mials, compute Gröbner bases of collections of polynomials, and convert polynomials into a functional form to be evaluated. Among other things, it is hoped that mpoly will provide an R-based foundation for the computational needs of algebraic statisticians.
