**Axiom: The Scientific Computation System**

by Richard D. Jenks, Robert S. Sutor

**Publisher**: axiom-developer.org 2003**ISBN/ASIN**: 0387978550**ISBN-13**: 9780387978550**Number of pages**: 1200

**Description**:

Axiom is a free general purpose computer algebra system. It consists of an interpreter environment, a compiler and a library, which defines a strongly typed, mathematically correct type hierarchy. The primary philosophy is that Axiom needs to develop several fundamental features in order to be useful to the next generation of computational mathematicians. The book gives the reader a technical introduction to AXIOM, interacts with the system's tutorial, accesses algorithms newly developed by the symbolic computation community, and presents advanced programming and problem solving techniques.
