[Maxima] citing maxima

I suggest

Maxima.sourceforge.net. Maxima, a Computer Algebra System. Version 5.18.1
 (2009). http://maxima.sourceforge.net/

It might be useful to note that there are numerous references to the closely-related Macsyma  (much easier to find by internet search because, unlike "maxima" the name is not a common noun). Macsyma, historically, dates to the late 1960's with the earliest published paper in 1971 by Martin and Fateman.

I looked at the wikipedia article for possible alternatives.  I did not see anything useful there.
