Mathix and Mathx
A user friendly computer system based upon
mathematics and cognitive psychology 


Goal 
The goal is to create such
a system. The following principles are adopted:

the interface agrees with how
the human mind works

the language is a computer algebra
with a natural feel of doing mathematics on the computer

it is fully functional for standard
tasks in mathematics  equation solving, calculations, plotting  while
you can work as in an agreeable version of Open Office  editting, search,
table of contents

it is free software with the
GNU Public License

it is technically functional
with a consistent interface to libraries for the various processes

the system is written in that
language itself, can compile itself and then is its own operating system

it is secure and efficient,
with hardly any scope for virusses and little need for updating



Design principles 
The design principles follow
from mathematics and cognitive psychology (human, system, task). 


Interest groups 
The ideas following from
cognitive
psychology 

The design of the language
for doing mathematics on the computer 

The actual technique
and programming
