Maxima Computer Algebra System

I'm a developer for the Maxima computer algebra system. I wrote to_poly_solve, code for symbolic and numerical evaluation of hypergeometric functions, including orthogonal polynomials, a solver for second order linear differential equations,  and support for linear algebra calculations; additionally, I coauthored nset (support for finite sets).
