Penrose: A system to convert complex mathematical equations into simple visual diagrams

Researchers from CMU and Technion developed Penrose. It is named Penrose, after the renowned mathematician and physicist Roger Penrose. The unavailability of tools or available tools not being user-friendly to convert complex mathematical equations into graphics form was one major factor behind Penrose’s development. The Penrose codifies the best practices of mathematical illustrators, which can be reused and are accessible.

With a visual portrayal that is client-specific in an imperative based detail language, Penrose’s capacity to isolate unique numerical items and their visual portrayals can likewise give experiences on the assessment and troubleshooting of client characterized information structures. This distinguishes Penrose from other visualization tools. This plotting of visual symbols from mathematical objects makes Penrose adaptable and versatile.

Even though the system converts any mathematical equations into a visual representation, the user should have the basic knowledge to check whether the diagram represents the mathematical equation, which was provided as the input.
