- Maxima and Octave

- Maxima and Octave are two open source mathematical tools among many. The are a lot of good reasons for using open source software beyond its purchase price which are clearly documented here.

- The Maxima package for Windows also includes wxMaxima which can help people start using Maxima without learning Maxima's languange.

- For the Mac OS X see MacPorts.

- Here is Harvard University Math Dept's brief introduction to Maxima.

- Here is an introduction to Maxima, as well as the primer which is distributed with maxima.

- Here is some more documentation on Maxima.

- Octave, a Matlab alternative for numerical work, is available under the GPL.

Here is a website using Maxima as its CAS engine and another one is here.

- Links to additional CAS's using Maxima as a component in a larger scheme can be found at Maxima's website.

Thanks for your reply. But isn't julia not a symbolic computation program?
