Development Emphasis

Efforts are underway to extend this software to:

- develop a better user interface

- make it useful as a teaching tool

- develop an algebra server protocol

- rebuild the algebra in a literate programming style

- integrate logic programming

- develop an Axiom Journal with refereed submissions.

Axiom is free, however it is a large and fairly complex program
with a significant learning curve. Before you invest a lot of time
installing and configuring Axiom, why not try it right here first?
There are many examples and [screenshots] available for you to
review and you can try out Axiom "online":SandBox!

List of Contributors

The following is a fairly complete list of people who have contributed
to the development of Axiom over it's long history. If you know of anyone
who you think should be on this list but is not, please let us know. It is
our intention to update this list frequently.

Many of these people are still actively involved with Axiom. Some however
have already passed beyond these mortal concerns and we can only silently
thank them for this wonderful legacy!
