**Basic Sums** package
==================
This guide is intended to make you familiar with the ``basicsums`` package for computing **structural sums** (also known as **basic sums**), mathematical objects originating from the theory of composites, considered to form a feature space vector of data represented by points or disks on the plane.
.. , having a lot of :ref:`applications `.
Structural sums have proven their value as geometric parameters describing random distributions of disks on the plane. They also perform the same role in description of microstructure as the :math:`n`-point correlation functions.
See short :ref:`introduction ` on the general structure of the package, installation, and applications. Then you may proceed with :ref:`sect-tutorial`, where the functionality of the package was described in details by examples. Refer also to the :ref:`sect-theory` section covering the underlying theory, for better understanding the package's purposes.
The repository with the source code for ``basicsums`` package is available at the `Bitbucket
