Abstract : This report provides a brief introduction to the use of MACSYMA, a symbolic manipulation program for mathematics. The first Chapter outlines invoking Macsyma, running tutorials and demos, saving transcripts and programs, editing and plotting facilities. The second Chapter provides 12 examples of Macsyma use. The following topics are touched upon: factorization, integration, matrix multiplications, eigenvalue problem, infinite series, recursion definitions and relations, solving systems of polynomial equations and ODEs. Some examples in Chapter 2 and the intricate example given in Chapter 3 demonstrate the possibilities of programming in Macsyma.
