Leibniz --10th Jan 2001
Leibniz is a graphical front end to Mathematica (version 3 and later) on Macintosh and Windows computers which allows you to type mathematical text and carry out calculations using a simple, drag and drop style of expression manipulation. Leibniz is a mathematical word processor: it allows you to quickly and easily type text and structured mathematical expressions. You can launch calculations from within Leibniz by selecting an expression to evaluate and hitting enter, or by selecting a portion of an expression and dragging it around the expression to launch a calculation. Leibniz uses MathLink to communicate with the Mathematica kernel, sending expressions to Mathematica for evaluation and translating the results back into nicely formatted mathematical expressions. Read me (MacOS 7.5). Screenshot. Homepage (free only as a text and equation editor).
