Maxima is a fully symbolic computation program.  It is full featured
doing symbolic manipulation of polynomials, matrices, rational
functions, integration, Todd-coxeter methods for finite group
analysis, graphing, multiple precision floating point computation.
It has a symbolic source level debugger for maxima code.  Maxima is
based on the original Macsyma developed at MIT in the 1970s.  It is
quite reliable, and has good garbage collection, and no memory leaks.
It comes with hundreds of self tests.
The maxima-sage packages are meant to be used together with SageMath.
They contain the version of Maxima that works together with the
SageMath version in Debian and use ECL instead of GCL as Lisp compiler.
To use Maxima by itself, the more complete and up-to-date maxima package
is recommended.
This package contains the main executables and base system files.
