Maxima: οδηγιες χρησης by Alexios Tamparopoulos
Maxima, open source systém počítačové algebry by Ján Buša
(Books and articles which mention Maxima or Macsyma.)
Kai Velten: Mathematical Modeling and Simulation, Wiley-VCH, 2009.
The only book on modeling and simulation that is exclusively based on open source software. It includes many examples from such diverse fields as biology, ecology, economics, medicine, agricultural, chemical, electrical, mechanical, and process engineering. Requiring only little mathematical prerequisite in calculus and linear algebra, this lucidly written text is accessible to scientists, engineers, and students at the undergraduate level. The book addresses a broad range of models from elementary statistical models to ODE and PDE models. The reader is introduced into CAELinux, Calc, Code-Saturne, Maxima, R, and Salome-Meca.
This is a very incomplete and in some places out of date user oriented manual. It is a work in progress, but is provided here in the hope it might be useful.
Update: This new version isn't all that different, but it has been updated a bit with regards to plotting and a couple other minor changes. Emaxima and install docs have not been updated yet. Mathematical content is essentially unchanged. Pictures should be of slightly better quality.
The different sessions provide the necessary theory and the solution using Maxima for problems encountered in Engineering computing.
