       By default, the command axiom would start the process

       axiom is a fomerly proprietary, newly open-source, interactive computer
       algebra program.  Opensource axiom now has support  for  both  graphics
       and  the  hyperdoc  help  system.  Please refer to these facilities for
       detailed usage instructions. This  manual  page  was  written  for  the
       Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual

       A good but slightly out of date source of documentation can be found in
       the  book Axiom: The Scientific Computation System, by Richard D. Jenks
       and Robert S. Sutor available through   A  pdf  version  of
       this book is now included in the axiom-doc package.
