axiom is a fomerly proprietary, newly open-source, interactive computer algebra program. Opensource axiom now has support for both graphics and the hyperdoc help system. Please refer to these facilities for detailed usage instructions. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
A good but slightly out of date source of documentation can be found in the book Axiom: The Scientific Computation System, by Richard D. Jenks and Robert S. Sutor available through amazon.com. A pdf version of this book is now included in the axiom-doc package.
