today I was playing with #maxima : an #opensource computer algebra software that can make most of the mathematical calculations you will encounter in graduate studies. #sagemath is also a very popular computer algebra software because it integrates python as programming language and runs through a web browser (in fact sagemath is a webserver) in return it is cumbersome to install (more than 600MB to download and need a virtual machine under windows). On the contrary Maxima is very light to install, can be used with different HMI like wxmaxima or xmaxima, or also in command line. Maxima is developed in lisp language, less popular than python but very elegant and concise. It also has a fairly simple programming mechanism that allows to write the result of some mathematical problem easily, like integration by parts or variable change. More informations :

An order of magnitude difference (5 km/sec to newer limit of 40 km/sec) is a term describing significant performance improvement that can change existing operational processes in an ecosystem. In transportation, we have seen the impact of these innovations after the successful development of products that enable us to move items farther and quicker and ensuing development of secondary products and services downstream in the value chain. The #IonRocketEngine would be such a game-changing innovation in the space transportation business. #ComeBackHere20171015
