.SH DESCRIPTION
.B 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 page.
.PP
A good but slightly out of date source of documentation can be found
in the book
.IR "Axiom: The Scientific Computation System" ,
by Richard D. Jenks and Robert S. Sutor available through amazon.com.
A pdf version of this book is now included in the axiom-doc package.
.\" TeX users may be more comfortable with the \fB<whatever>\fP and
.\" \fI<whatever>\fP escape sequences to invode bold face and italics, 
.\" respectively.
