Package: math/jacal
Description: JACAL - symbolic math package
Version: 0-4
Notes:
JACAL System is a computer program for the manipulation and simplification
of algebraic and complex analytic equations, expressions, functions, and
constants.
OVERVIEW OF THE JACAL SYSTEM
JACAL differs from many other symbolic mathematics systems in that the input
and outupt formats are the same. Any expression typed out by JACAL can be
used as input. If the user has an input editor, she can extract parts of
expressions easily with it.
The syntax used by JACAL is a slightly extended version of MACSYMA syntax.
The extensions are the use of x' to represent differentials and the
construct {x|equation}. This represents a (possibly multiple) value of the
roots of equation in x. | is read as "such that".
