Maxima is a fairly complete computer algebra system written in lisp with an emphasis on symbolic computation. Maxima is based on DOE-MACSYMA and licensed under the GPL. Its abilities include symbolic integration, 3D plotting, and an ODE solver.
Franz Inc. has created a prompt that allows you to try Maxima via the Web. Simply click on one of the links below to get connected. Once the Maxima Prompt appears, you can begin plugging in algebraic equations!
Maxima's abilities include symbolic integration, 3D plotting, and an ODE solver.
Example 1: If you enter integrate(sin(x),x); the system will return the symbolic representation of the integration, i.e., -cos(x).
Example 2: If you enter diff(1/sqrt(1+x^3),x); the system will return -3*x^2/2*(x^3+1)^(3/2).
