Xcas is a user interface to Giac, a free, basic Computer Algebra System (CAS) for Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS and Linux/Unix; Xcas is written in C++. 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.
Here is a brief overview of what Xcas is able to do:
- computer algebra, including calculus, geometry, statistics, equation solving, and visualization
- Linear algebra
Xcas and Giac are open-source projects developed by Bernard Parisse et al. at the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble (Isère), France, since 2000. Xcas and Giac are based on experiences gained with Parisse's former project Erable.
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.
