I am writing to you in order to attract your attention to "Universal Mathematical Solver" (UMS), a new software product of our corporation "Severny Ochag", situated in St.Petersburg, Russia.
The goal of the project is to cover school, college and first years university mathematics. The distinguishing feature of this project is as follows: computer should produce not only the final answer (as professional computer algebra systems do) but also step-by-step explanation of all transformations performed accompanied by an appropriate audio commentary.
Now the project is at the beginning, at the moment four initial modules ("Simplification", "Solving algebraic equations", "Partial factorization", "Complete factorization") are ready. Many sophisticated methods with elements of AI were implemented in these programs.
The program exists both in Russian and English languages. A demo version can be downloaded from many WWW sites including the following:
This demo version has functional restrictions: for new problems (given by the user) only answers are returned; the style of explanations produced by the full commercial version can be seen (and heard) on preloaded set of problems.
We would be happy to know your opinion about the programs, including critiques and suggestions for improvements. We would appreciate if you also inform your colleagues about this program.
We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
General Director TPO "Severny Ochag" Doctor in Mathematics Stanislav Kublanovsky
