I was thinking of moving my Lagrange equations-of-motion put here:
completely into Maxima, because then a class I'll be lecturing will be
able to use it completely in Windows without requiring a Lisp
implementation installed explicitly.
I looked at the tutorial by Dieter Kaiser, but it still misses out a
lot of things (and I couldn't find the other 4 chapters).
For instance what exactly is a prop ? It looks like some kind of a
special function-symbol declaration, I couldn't find any comments
about what each 'indic means (verb .. ?). I have to say it is terribly
hard for want-to-be developers to get -a vague- understanding of
Maxima works. Help.
P.S: Is there a good reason why parts of Maxima still has (exploden
..) instead of using proper strings ?
