OAOD (Cantor)

Application: Cantor

What it is:

Cantor is a free software mathematics application for scientific
statistics and analysis.[1][2] It is part of the KDE Software
Compilation 4, and was introduced with the 4.4 release[1] as part of
the KDE Education Project’s kdeedu package.


Cantor is a graphical user interface that delegates its mathematical
operations to one of several back ends. As of version 0.1, it can make
use of Sage, Maxima, R or KAlgebra[3].

Cantor provides a consistent interface to these backends; its project
page lists the following features[3]:

* Nice Worksheet view for evaluating expressions
* View of plotting results inside the worksheet or in a separate window
* Easy plugin based structure to add different Backends
* GetHotNewStuff integration to upload/download example worksheets
* Typesetting of mathematical formulas using LaTeX
* Backend aware syntax highlighting
* Plugin based assistant dialogs for common tasks (like
integrating a function or entering a matrix)
