Abstract

We have found a new application of Computer Algebra System (CAS), KETpic which has been developed as a macro package for a CAS. One of aspects in its philosophy is CAS-aided visualization in \(\mbox{\LaTeX}\) documents. We aim to extend KETpic to other CASs, and derive necessary conditions from the basic idea for CASs to accept it, i.e., I/O functions with external files and manipulating numerical or string data. Finally, we describe KETpic for Maple as a successful example. By using KETpic we can draw fine pictures in \(\mbox{\LaTeX}\) documents.
