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.

I run android 4.3. What's the point of using this app if the download control on the author's website is inoperable?

Great app!!! It's very handy to be able to do some complex integrals when Mathematica is not available.

Works great but, I wish that it had support for permanently adding user functions. As for as I can tell, it lacks this functionality.

Best CAS for Android! Started using this after Octave port became nagware. It takes a while to get used to but is breeze once you get to know the commands and syntax. The manual is very helpful and have quite a few examples for almost all the commands. Since the outputs are rendered using MathJax, you can export the output to LaTeX. This makes it great companion to TeXPortal for compiling documents on the go. Kudos to the developer for bringing Maxima to Android and keeping the spirit of open source! Much appreciated.
