Xcas is a user interface to Giac, a free, basic Computer Algebra System (CAS)[1] for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS and Linux/Unix;[2] Xcas is written in C++.[3] Giac can be used directly inside software written in C++. Giac has a compatibility mode with Maple and MuPAD and Texas Instruments' TI-89, TI-92, Voyage 200 and TI-Nspire calculators.

Features[edit]

Here is a brief overview of what Xcas is able to do:[4]

History[edit]

Xcas and Giac are open-source projects developed by Bernard Parisse et al. at the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble (Isère), France, since 2000.[6] Xcas and Giac are based on experiences gained with Parisse's former project Erable.[7]

In 2013, Giac was also integrated into GeoGebra's CAS view, and it was also chosen by Hewlett-Packard as the CAS for their HP Prime calculator, which utilizes the Giac 1.4.9 engine under a dual-license scheme.
