Package: Axiom Computer Algebra System
System name: axiom
Type: 2

Axiom is a computer algebra system. It allows you to do symbolic
mathematical manipulations as is done in Calculus, Linear Algebra,
Group Theory, etc. 

Axiom was a software project originally developed by IBM 
Research under the name Scratchpad. It was sold by NAG in England
as a commercial product. Axiom has been released as free software
under the modified BSD license. I have the source code and will
be making it available worldwide. Additional information is at:

Other Software Required:

Other Comments:
Axiom is one of the \"big 3\" computer algebra systems, the other two are
Mathematica and Maple. Axiom has existed for 30 years and represents
more than 300 man-years of research work. Axiom has not been commercially 
available since October 2001 but has been released as
free software. Many researchers depend on the system for their work.
