## Binary package “axiom” in ubuntu cosmic

# General purpose computer algebra system: main binary and modules

Axiom is useful for

research and development of mathematical algorithms. It defines a

strongly typed, mathematically correct type hierarchy. It has a

programming language and a built-in compiler.

.

Axiom has been in development since 1973 and was sold as a

commercial product. It has been released as free software.

.

Efforts are underway to extend this software to (a) develop a

better user interface (b) make it useful as a teaching tool

(c) develop an algebra server protocol (d) integrate additional

mathematics (e) rebuild the algebra in a literate programming style

(f) integrate logic programming (g) develop an Axiom Journal with

refereed submissions.

.

This package contains the main program binary and all precompiled

algebra and autoloadable modules.
