When using LyX, how can I call Mathematica to input a mathematical expression, such as using Mathematica's Solve[] function, and return the result directly to LyX?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! I fear, this question is off-topic, as this site deals with TeX and its features, not with features from Mathematica. – user31729 Oct 14 '14 at 14:07
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Could you include more information to your question? If the question is about how to typeset functions in a particular manner, it is perfectly on topic. – Claudio Fiandrino Oct 14 '14 at 14:14

    Yes, LyX does support Mathematica. shj: Make a math box in LyX (ctrl + m), put in the math box "solve(...)", and then right-click and go to Use Computer Algebra System and then "Mathematica". If that doesn't work, can you please give a very detailed account of what you have tried and post a LyX minimal example? – scottkosty Oct 14 '14 at 16:41

    @scottkosty Hey, can you make your comment into an answer? The same was asked a bit ago on latex-community, so i guess it is helpful for others. – Johannes_B May 15 '16 at 8:12
