Abstract:

MACSYMA, an interactive computerized symbolic manipulation system, is discussed in relation to its capabilities, its usage in the Navy Laboratories, and its demonstrated benefits to the scientificengineering community. Specific applications in five laboratories are given and investigators are identified. Recommendations are made for continuation of support to broaden and refine the use of MACSYMA in the Navy Laboratories and to exploit the combination of symbolic and numeric computation on Navy Laboratory computer network facilities. Interest by Army and Air Force research groups in joining Navys participation in MACSYMA is discussed and a recommendation is made for consideration to be given to making Navy a focal point in the Department of Defense for the use of MACSYMA.
