wxMaxima is a cross platform GUI for the computer algebra system Maxima based on wxWidgets.

Homepage and source dwl:

wxMaxima features include:

  • 2D formatted math display: wxMaxima implements its own math display engine to nicely display maxima output.

  • Menu system: most Maxima commands are available through menus. Most used functions are also available through a button panel below the document.

  • Dialogs: commands which require more that one argument can be entered through dialogs so that there is no need to remember the exact syntax.

  • Create documents: text can be mixed with math calculations to create documents. Documents can be saved and edited again later.

  • Animations: version 0.7.4 adds support for simple animations.

wxMaxima is released under the GPL2 licence.
