An Alternative Front End for Mathematica
Leibniz is a combination custom Mathematica package and mathematical word
processor for Macintosh computers. Leibniz uses Mathematica's pattern-matching
facilities to match the form of an expression the user wants to manipulate to
the action the user wants to perform. The result is an easy-to-use and simple
system for creating mathematical documents and doing calculations.
Performing calculations requires selecting an expression and pressing the
"enter" key or clicking and dragging to rearrange expressions. Despite
its extreme ease of use, Leibniz is immensely powerful because it uses the full
capacity of the Mathematica kernel to perform calculations.
Leibniz is also an open, customizable system. Users can modify the behavior of
Leibniz and add personalized calculation rules.
The Leibniz system ships with the Leibniz application, the custom Mathematica
package, a printed user manual, online help, and a set of tutorial and example
files. Leibniz requires Mathematica and is available for Windows 95/98/NT and
Macintosh platforms. The Windows version is compatible with Mathematica 3.0 or
later, while the Macintosh version is compatible with Mathematica 2.2 or later.
