Maxima uses %e for the Euler constant. Similarly, %pi is the circular
constant. To read the user documentation for %e, enter
(%i1) ? %e;
at an input prompt.
After solving, the unknown M is is on both sides of the equation
This means that Maxima was not able to solve your equation.
(I doubt that it has a solution that ccan be expressed using
If you would like to keep Maxima from returning an non-explicit
solution, set solveexplicit to true:
(%i4) solveexplicit : true;
Now Maxima returns the empty set. This doesn't mean that the
equation doesn't have a solution, it only means that Maxima
wasn't able to find a solution.
