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.

Powerful, needs some improvement Nice, it can solve more integrals than most Android calculators. Though some are not solved and can be solved by "Reduce for Android", such as "1/((x-3)^4+1/2)" . And of course many that can be solved by Mathematica for PC, such as or "sqrt((x+sqrt(1+x^2))/x). It would also be nice to have a GUI with shortcuts for formulas. Another very easy calculation maxima does wrong is: assume(x>= y, y>= z, z>= x)$ is( x = z ); taylor (sqrt(x), x, 0, 5) returns sqrt(x), that's wrong.

Same experience as on desktop Great job! Such a complex piece of software ported on a mobile platform. Neat.
