What is wxMaxima?

The wxMaxima software is a computing algebra system based on a mathematical system developed around 1960s called Macsyma by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The enhanced version of the software was maintained by William Shelter from 1982 to 1981.

The software is primarily used to manipulate numerical equations that cover integration, Laplace transforms, differentiation, matrices, tensors, and vectors. The software is utilized to obtain mathematical results of high-precision by providing exact fractions, variable floating points and integers. Functions can also be plotted using this algebraic software. Data can be also presented in two and three-dimensional graphs with the use of the wxMaxima software.

The source code for the wxMaxima software software can be utilized on different operating systems including, Linux, Mac OS X, as well as on different versions of Windows. William Shelter was able to obtain the license to release the said source code from the government agency called General Public License (GPL). An on-line community was established to accommodate questions, improve the released source code and enhance documentation with the help of end-users as well as to gather information and suggestions on how to further improve the software.
