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.

Recent changes:
v 2.5, August 1st, 2014

New:
- Draw_graph() function in Graphs package now works.
- Drawing functions in the dynamics package now works. Evolution(), evolution2d(), staircase(), orbits() were affected.
- The latest version of qepmax package is included. This version supports Extended Tarski Formula.

Note: Devices with CPU other than ARM (ex Galaxy Tab 3) are not supported.

Excellent CAS for your Android devices Maxima is a great open source computer algebra system, and this is a port to Android platform. It works very well on all my Android (ARM) devices. The developer keeps the spirit of open source. You can download the complete source and compile yourself. (Yes, I successfully built it.) There is another paid app named 'Algebra Solver Maxima' which is suspiciously similar to this one. I wonder whether the developers collaborated.

Takes some learning if you're not familiar BUT who cares because it's worth it. I literally find myself just 3d plotting, evaluating random series' and learning Taylor series' all day long and that's not even all it can do.
