Maxima on Android

Maxima on Android


Maxima, a full featured computer algebra system, now runs on your Android mobile devices. Maxima, and its predecessor Macsyma is one of the most long-established software in the world, back in 1960s at MIT LCS and Project Mac. You can perform many many math operations such as integration, differentiation, matrix operations, rational numbers, symbolic treatment of constants such as pi, e, euler's gamma, symbolic and numerical treatment of special functions such as sin(x), cos(x), log(x), exp(x), zeta(s), and many more.

Maxima on Android is a port of Maxima on the Android operating system. Thanks to Sylvain Ageneau' effort on porting Embeddable Common Lisp to the Android OS, the latest Maxima code runs nicely on ECL on Android with very small changes to the source code.

Maxima on Android is a combination of many open source software: ECL on Android, MathJax, and Maxima itself. I wrote roughly a thousand lines of Java code and a hundred lines of HTML including Javascript code.

The installation of the software requires total of 90MB on the storage. 30MB needs to be installed on the internal storage. The rest of 60MB can be installed either on the external or the internal storage. The first run of the apk will ask you where you want the 60MB to be installed.

Then you can enjoy Maxima / Macsyma on your mobile phone or tablet based on Android OS.

Great! Love the app! New to cas' so it taking a little bit to get used to the commands. Would be great to have the use of command buttons but i realize it a smart phone app and there may be limitations to what can be done with that!

It's very good. I erroneously get into the problem, that if I try to enter a complex system of equations with Hacker's Keyboard on my phone in portrait orientation, some sort of keyboard entry error results in an empty solution set. But then the same apparent problem gets solved fine in landscape. :-)

Partly Works In Huawei Ascend 2. Commands work but can't get anything out of Dropbox. HuawieA2 has /sdcard0/download/ and so Maxima can't seem to find it after 'export'. So there seems to be no way to save the work or transfer it. Otherwise it would be good tool.
