SAGE can define piecewise functions like

x \ {\mapsto}\ \sin ( \frac{\pi \cdot x}{2} )

on (0, 1), x \ {\mapsto}\ 1 - ( x - 1 )^2

on (1, 3), x \ {\mapsto}\ -x

on (3, 5), as follows: sage: f(x) = sin(x*pi/2) sage: g(x) = 1-(x-1)^2 sage: h(x) = -x sage: P = Piecewise([[(0,1), f], [(1,3),g], [(3,5), h]]) sage: latex(P)
