+Mathomatic is designed to be as general and easy to use as possible.
+The software implements most of the rules of algebra for addition,
+subtraction, multiplication, division, modulo division, and all forms
+of exponentiation. All arithmetic is double precision floating point
+with up to 14 decimal digits accuracy.
+Mathomatic can symbolically:
+*combine and solve equations containing many variables
+*completely simplify and compare expressions and equations
+*do simple calculus transformations and series
+*perform standard, complex number, and polynomial arithmetic
+*generate optimized C, Java, and Python language code from simplified equations
+*carry out quick calculations, etc.
+Not implemented in Mathomatic are a GUI with plotting, named mathematical
+functions (such as f(x) and log(x)), arbitrary-precision arithmetic, and
