The Future of Leibniz
Leibniz is an evolving system. The rule base is continually being refined as Leibniz users discover the need for new kinds of calculations. The open architecture of the Leibniz systems makes it relatively easy to add rules for new kinds of calculations.
Another recent addition to the system is a dialog facility. Mathematica code in the
Over the long term, Leibniz will function as a test bed for ideas in interface design. By pointing out the limitations of the pattern-matching, drag-and-drop interface, Leibniz can point the way toward better and more powerful interface mechanisms for symbolic calculation.
