I am new to Maxima, never having used this mailing list before, and I
if anyone can help clarify this small problem I have?.
eq1: R = (3^(3/2)*sin(z)-3*cos(z))/4;
print("Maxima fails to simplify the expression. But...");
print("Maxima now shows us that eq1 was in fact just a phase shift");
print("How can I get Maxima to show this without the two subst
My problem of course, is that I had to guess that the expression was a
phase shift, had I not guessed this, I would never have got there...
Thanks for any help
By the way - thank you all for supporting Maxima. I had the pleasure of
working with Macsyma on the Symbolic XL1200 -- I have the original
Symbolics Macsyma documentation someplace. It is wonderful to have
access to Maxima as an open source project. Thank you.
