Oh okay, I thought you had that version already.

I downloaded it but did not install until now.

I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

It takes up a lot more space than I thought it would, over 100 MB I think, even though the set-up is just over 30 MB.

Do you have the memory for that?

Oh, sorry. 2 GB RAM, I think that is enough for Maxima.

Most of that is software related.

Hi;

It does calculus, high precision calculations, solves equations, solves ordinary DE's, does summation...

Looks like I have an offline substitute for W|A, that is good...

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, I suggest go through the help manuals you will see that it has a huge capability.

taylor(sin(x),x,0,10)

Try that.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Wow, that is pretty good. I tried it for terms up to x^99 and it was a lot faster than I expected.

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, you can do taylor series and a whole lot more. Or:

partfrac((x+1)/((x-1)*(x-2)),x);

### Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I did not know it could do that...

Also, it doesn't give a strange answer for laplace(tan(t), t, s);, whereas W|A did.

Have you tried 500!; yet? Try that with pencil and paper.

Must have some setting somewhere to display the full answer but I can not find it.
